The ordered pair solution of y = (2/5)x + 2 corresponding to 5 is (x, y) = (5, 0)
Solution:
Given that we have to find the ordered pair solution of [tex]y = \frac{2}{5}x + 2[/tex] corresponding to 5
Let us find the ordered pair corresponding x = 5
Ordered pairs are often used to represent two variables
The number which corresponds to the value of x is called the xcoordinate and the number which corresponds to the value of y is called the ycoordinate
Substitute x =  5 into the function and evaluate for y
[tex]y = \frac{2}{5}x + 2\\\\y = \frac{2}{5}(5) + 2\\\\y = 2(1) + 2\\\\y = 2 + 2\\\\y = 0[/tex]
Therefore the ordered pair is x = 5 and y = 0 which is (x, y) = (5, 0)
