Answer

Both are solutions

Work Step by Step

We are given that $y=x^{4}$. In order to see whether each ordered pair is a solution of the given equation, we can plug in the ordered pair to the equation. For (-1,1): $(-1)^{4}=-1\times-1\times-1\times-1=1$ So, (-1,1) is a solution. For (2,16): $2^{4}=2\times2\times2\times2=16$ So, (2,16) is a solution.
