## Algebra: A Combined Approach (4th Edition)

The ordered pair $(-5,1)$ is a solution, but the ordered pair $(0,2)$ is not a solution.
We replace $x$ with $0$ and $y$ with $2$ and see if a true statement results. $x \lt -y$ $(0) \lt -(2)$ $0 \lt -2$ False The ordered pair $(0,2)$ is not a solution since $0 \lt -2$ is a false statement. We replace $x$ with $-5$ and $y$ with $1$ and see if a true statement results. $x \lt -y$ $(-5) \lt -(1)$ $-5 \lt -1$ True The ordered pair $(-5,1)$ is a solution since $-5 \lt -1$ is a true statement.
