# Find Three Ordered Pair Solutions 3x-y=1 3x-y=1
Solve the equation for y.
Subtract 3x from both sides of the equation.
-y=1-3x
Multiply each term in -y=1-3x by -1
Multiply each term in -y=1-3x by -1.
(-y)⋅-1=1⋅-1+(-3x)⋅-1
Multiply (-y)⋅-1.
Multiply -1 by -1.
1y=1⋅-1+(-3x)⋅-1
Multiply y by 1.
y=1⋅-1+(-3x)⋅-1
y=1⋅-1+(-3x)⋅-1
Simplify each term.
Multiply -1 by 1.
y=-1+(-3x)⋅-1
Multiply -1 by -3.
y=-1+3x
y=-1+3x
y=-1+3x
y=-1+3x
Choose any value for x that is in the domain to plug into the equation.
Choose 0 to substitute in for x to find the ordered pair.
Remove parentheses.
y=-1+3(0)
Simplify -1+3(0).
Multiply 3 by 0.
y=-1+0
y=-1
y=-1
Use the x and y values to form the ordered pair.
(0,-1)
(0,-1)
Choose 1 to substitute in for x to find the ordered pair.
Remove parentheses.
y=-1+3(1)
Simplify -1+3(1).
Multiply 3 by 1.
y=-1+3
y=2
y=2
Use the x and y values to form the ordered pair.
(1,2)
(1,2)
Choose 2 to substitute in for x to find the ordered pair.
Remove parentheses.
y=-1+3(2)
Simplify -1+3(2).
Multiply 3 by 2.
y=-1+6
y=5
y=5
Use the x and y values to form the ordered pair.
(2,5)
(2,5)
These are three possible solutions to the equation.
