systems of linear equations

There are methods to convert a system of equations into an equation with just one unknown. You can solve it graphically, too.

The main methods to solve linear systems are:

–The graph method

–The substitution method

–The algebraic equation method

–The elimination method

graph method
You have to draw the two lines and find the intersection point.
Example :
substitution method
You have to work out one unknown in one equation and substitute it in the other.
Example 1:
Example 2:
algebraic equation method
You have to work out one unknown in both equations and equalize.
Example 1:
Example 2:
elimination method
You have to remove one unknown in one equation by combining the two equations.
Example 1:
Example 2:
Exercise. Solve the following systems by using the four methods:
