We plug in the x and y values to find that

#### Explanation:

When looking at a set of coordinates (x,y), to find out if those coordinates are the solution to a given equation is simple. All we have to do is plug them in.

So in the set of coordinates (2,2), x=2 and y=2. Now we take those numbers and plug them in for x and y in our equation.

So

Simplifying, we find
