Answer: 4

B.Stat Objective Question 71

Challenges and Thrills of Pre-College Mathematics by University Press

Try with Hints

First hint

\(x^{2}+6x+y^{2}=4\) gives \((x+3)^{2}\)=13-\(y^{2}\)

Second Hint

for 1st value positive integer of x, we have 1st and 2nd value of y and for 2nd value negative integer of x we have 3rd and 4th value of y

Final Step

then number of ordered pair is 2+2=4.
