A system that has a unique solution is an independent system.
A dependent system does not have a unique solution. An inconsistent system is a system that has no solution.

Graphical Solutions of linear Systems in Two Variables
Intersecting Lines Coinciding Lines Parallel Lines one solution Independent no solution Inconsistent no unique solution Dependent Same slopes and different y intercepts Same slopes and same y intercepts Different slopes and y intercepts

Analyzing Graphs Description of Lines How many points of intersection?

Example 3 Classifying Systems Without Graphing
Classify the system without graphing. 3x + y = 5 15x + 5y = 2 y = 2x +3 -4x + 2y = 6 x – y = 5 y + 3 = 2x

3-2 Solving Systems Algebraically
What you’ll learn … To solve a system by substitution. 2.10 Use systems of two or more equations or inequalities to model and solve problems; justify results. Solve using tables, graphs, matrix operations, and algebraic properties.

Steps for Substitution:
Substitution Method: Steps for Substitution: Solve for x or y in one of the equations. Substitute into the second equation. Solve for the variable in the second equation. Substitute that value into one of the equations to solve for the other unknown variable. A method of solving a system of equations by replacing one variable with an equivalent expression containing the other variable.

Example 1: Solving by Substitution
Solve the system by substitution. 4x +3y = 4 2x – y =7 Solve the system by substitution. 2x – 3y = 6 x + y = -12

Example 2a: Real World Connection
Refer to the photo at the left. The cost of membership in a health club includes a monthly charge and a one time initiation fee. Find the monthly charge and the initiation fee. Health Club Membership Fees 2 months: \$100 6 months \$200

Example 2b: Real World Connection
You can buy CDs at a local store for \$15.49 each. You can buy them at an online store for \$13.99 each plus \$6 for shipping. Solve a system of equations to find the number of CDs that you can buy for the same amount at the two stores.

Elimination Method: Steps for Elimination
Put both equations into standard form. Eliminate by getting opposite coefficients. Add the two equations, solve. Substitute value into equation for unknown variable. A method of solving a system of equations. You add or subtract the equations to eliminate a variable.

Example 3: Solving by Elimination
Use the elimination method to solve the system. 4x – 2y = 7 x + 2y = 3 Use the elimination method to solve the system. 4x + 9y = 1 4x + 6y = -2 Use the elimination method to solve the system. 3x + 7y = 15 5x + 2y = -4

Example 4: Solving by Elimination
To make two terms additive inverses, you may need to multiply one or both equations in a system by a nonzero number. In doing so, you create a system equivalent to the original one. Equivalent systems are systems that have the same solution (s). Use the elimination method to solve the system. 3x + 7y = 15 5x + 2y = -4 Use the elimination method to solve the system. 2m + 4n = -4 3m + 5n = -3

Example 5: Solving a System Without a Unique Solution
Solve the system using substitution or elimination method. -3x + 5y = 7 6x - 10y = -14 Solve the system using substitution or elimination method. -2x + 4y = 6 -3x + 6y = 8

3-4 Linear Programming What you’ll learn …
To find maximum and minimum values. To solve problems with linear programming. 2.10 Use systems of two or more equations or inequalities to model and solve problems; justify results. Solve using tables, graphs, matrix operations, and algebraic properties.

Linear programming is a technique that identifies the minimum or maximum value of some quantity. This quantity is modeled with an objective function. Limits on the variables in the objective function are constraints, written as linear inequalities. These constraints form the system of inequalities at the right. The blue region in the graph, the feasible region, contains all points that satisfy all the constraints.

Steps to Solve Linear Programming Problem
Define the variables. Write a system of inequalities. Graph the system of inequalities on graph paper. Find the coordinates of the vertices of the feasible region. Write a function to be maximized or minimized. Substitute the coordinates of the vertices into the function. Select the greatest or least result. Answer the problem.

Example 2 Find the values of x and y that maximize or minimize the objective function for each graph. D. (0, 500) C. (400, 300) B. (600, 0) A. (0, 0)

Example 6 Graph each system of constraints. Name all vertices. Then find the values of x and y that maximize or minimize the objective function. x + y ≤ 8 2x + y ≤ 10 x ≥ 0 y ≥ 0 Maximize for N = 100x + 40y

Example 9 Graph each system of constraints. Name all vertices. Then find the values of x and y that maximize or minimize the objective function. 2 ≤ x ≤ 6 1 ≤ y ≤ 5 x + y ≤ 8 Maximize for P = 3x + 2y
