**Use addition to eliminate a variable**

EXAMPLE 1 Use addition to eliminate a variable CHECK Substitute 1 for x and 3 for y in each of the original equations. 2x + 3y = 11 2x + 5y = 13 2(1) + 3(3) = 11 ? 2(1) + 5(3) = 13 ? 11 = 11 13 = 13

4
**Use subtraction to eliminate a variable**

EXAMPLE 2 Use subtraction to eliminate a variable Solve the linear system: 4x + 3y = 2 Equation 1 5x + 3y = –2 Equation 2 SOLUTION STEP 1 Subtract the equations to eliminate one variable. 4x + 3y = 2 5x + 3y = –2 STEP 2 Solve for x. – x = 4 x = 4

5
**Use subtraction to eliminate a variable**

EXAMPLE 2 Use subtraction to eliminate a variable STEP 3 Substitute 4 for x in either equation and solve for y. 4x + 3y = 2 Write Equation 1. 4(–4) + 3y = 2 Substitute –4 for x. y = 6 Solve for y. ANSWER The solution is (–4, 6).

6
**Solve the linear system: 8x – 4y = –4 4y = 3x + 14**

EXAMPLE 3 Arrange like terms Solve the linear system: 8x – 4y = –4 Equation 1 4y = 3x + 14 Equation 2 SOLUTION STEP 1 Rewrite Equation 2 so that the like terms are arranged in columns. 8x – 4y = –4 8x – 4y = –4 4y = 3x + 14 3x + 4y = 14 STEP 2 Add the equations. 5x = 10 STEP 3 Solve for x. x = 2

7
**Substitute 2 for x in either equation and solve for y.**

EXAMPLE 3 Arrange like terms STEP 4 Substitute 2 for x in either equation and solve for y. 4y = 3x + 14 Write Equation 2. 4y = 3(2) + 14 Substitute 2 for x. y = 5 Solve for y. ANSWER The solution is (2, 5).
