Answer

The ordered pair solution is $ (0,500).$ This means that when $0$ table is produced, $500$ chairs can be produced.

Work Step by Step

Substituting $ x=0 $ in the given equation, $ 2x+3y=1500 ,$ results to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 2x+3y=1500 \\ 2(0)+3y=1500 \\ 3y=1500 \\ y=\dfrac{1500}{3} \\ y=500 .\end{array} Hence, the ordered pair solution is $ (0,500).$ This means that when $0$ table is produced, $500$ chairs can be produced.
