Applications of Systems of Equations

Three Steps to solving applications
Step 1: NAME YOUR VARIABLES!! What are you looking for and what are you going to call them in math language? Step 2: Write the number of equations that equals the number of variables. Step 3: Line up variables and solve using matrices OR solve for y and graph.
