Consider this 2x2 system of linear equations
x + 2y = 3
2x-y = -4
Examine the constants in the first equation and describe any patterns. Repeat for the second equation.
I'm being ask to determine the pattern across and down for the x values only.

Questions like this are really badly worded... you could say literally anything for them. Like 1+2=3 in the first equation; or the constant term on the RHS is equal to the square of the coefficient of x multiplied by the coefficient of y in each case, etc... Does it tell you what it's trying to get at by asking it? What's the next part of the question?
