4x= -2y + 2
2x + 4y =6

A) (1,1)
B) No solution. The system is inconsistent.
C) (5, -1)
D) (3,5)

I worked the problem with the ordered pairs given and I came up with no solution. Can anyone tell me if I did this correctly?

As you have posted the problem - there is a solution.

However I suspect you have typo some where - because the solution I come up with is not listed. Please check your original problem and your post to assure correctness.

If the first equation changes to 4x - 2y = 2, then the answer is (A).

I checked to verify that I typed the problem in correctly.

should I try to solve this problem with the elimination method?

All the methods will give you the same answer - and the correct answer is not listed.
