TODAY IN ALGEBRA…  Warm Up: Solving a system by Elimination  Learning Goal: 7.4 You will solve systems of linear equations by Elimination with multiplication first  Independent Practice  MID CH.7 TEST-MONDAY/TUESDAY!

WARM UP: Solve the systems using ELIMINATION.

Same signs: SUBTRACT WARM UP: Solve the systems using ELIMINATION.

Different signs: ADD WARM UP: Solve the systems using ELIMINATION.

7.3 SOLVING LINEAR SYSTEMS BY ELIMINATION STEPS FOR SOLVING A LINEAR SYSTEM BY ELIMINATION WITH ELIMINATION FIRST: STEP 1: Align the variables with x and y on the same side of each equation. Choose a variable to eliminate and multiply each equation by the coefficients. Then ADD or SUBTRACT the equations. STEP 2: SOLVE the equation for the remaining variable. STEP 3: Substitute the solution from STEP 2 into either equation to solve for given variable. THIS IS MUCH EASIER WITH AN EXAMPLE!

7.4 ELIMINATION WITH MULTIPLICATION FIRST I’ll eliminate the x’s first Now I have matching coefficients! Solve this system using elimination.

7.3 SOLVING LINEAR SYSTEMS BY ELIMINATION EXAMPLE 1 Continued: Same signs: SUBTRACT

7.4 ELIMINATION WITH MULTIPLICATION FIRST I’ll eliminate the x’s first Now I have matching coefficients! Solve this system using elimination.

7.3 SOLVING LINEAR SYSTEMS BY ELIMINATION EXAMPLE 2 Continued: Same signs: SUBTRACT

7.4 ELIMINATION WITH MULTIPLICATION FIRST I’ll eliminate the y’s first Sometimes you only need to multiply one equation! Now I have matching coefficients! Solve this system using elimination.

7.3 SOLVING LINEAR SYSTEMS BY ELIMINATION EXAMPLE 3 Continued: Same signs: SUBTRACT

7.4 ELIMINATION WITH MULTIPLICATION FIRST I’ll eliminate the x’s first Now I have matching coefficients! Solve this system using elimination.

7.3 SOLVING LINEAR SYSTEMS BY ELIMINATION EXAMPLE 4 Continued: Same signs: SUBTRACT

7.4 ELIMINATION WITH MULTIPLICATION FIRST

I’ll eliminate the y’s first Now I have matching coefficients! Solve this system using elimination.

7.3 SOLVING LINEAR SYSTEMS BY ELIMINATION EXAMPLE 4 Continued: Same signs: SUBTRACT x: soccer balls cost \$14.50 each, y: bags cost \$5.00 each
