The question should perhaps better be stated "How does one find an
order-pair solution?", because there are infinitely-many such solutions! Every point on the line is a "solution" to the equation!
To "find" a solution, you pick an x-value (any number you like), plug it into the equation, and solve to find the corresponding y-value. That (x, y) point is a "solution".
