Holt Algebra Solving Systems by Substitution Sometimes it is difficult to identify the exact solution to a system by graphing. In this case, you can use a method called substitution. The goal when using substitution is to reduce the system to one equation that has only one variable. Then you can solve this equation by the methods taught in Chapter 2.

Holt Algebra Solving Systems by Substitution Solving Systems of Equations by Substitution Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Step 1 Solve for one variable in at least one equation, if necessary. Substitute the resulting expression into the other equation. Solve that equation to get the value of the first variable. Substitute that value into one of the original equations and solve. Write the values from steps 3 and 4 as an ordered pair, (x, y), and check.
