Lesson 3 Contents Example 1Elimination Using Addition Example 2Write and Solve a System of Equations Example 3Elimination Using Subtraction Example 4Elimination Using Subtraction

4
Use elimination to solve the system of equations. Example 3-1a Since the coefficients of the x terms, –3 and 3, are additive inverses, you can eliminate the x terms by adding the equations. Write the equation in column form and add. Notice that the x value is eliminated. Divide each side by –2. Simplify.

5
Example 3-1a Now substitute –15 for y in either equation to find the value of x. Simplify. Add 60 to each side. Divide each side by –3. Simplify. First equation Replace y with –15. Simplify. Answer: The solution is (–24, –15).

6
Example 3-1b Use elimination to solve the system of equations. Answer: (2, 1)

7
Example 3-2a Four times one number minus three times another number is 12. Two times the first number added to three times the second number is 6. Find the numbers. Let x represent the first number and y represent the second number. Four times one number minus three times another number is12. Two times the first number added to three times the second number is6. 4x4x – 3y3y = 12 2x2x + 3y3y = 6

8
Example 3-2a Use elimination to solve the system. Notice that the y value is eliminated. Divide each side by 6. Simplify. Write the equation in column form and add.

9
Example 3-2a Now substitute 3 for x in either equation to find the value of y. Answer: The numbers are 3 and 0. First equation Replace x with 3. Simplify. Subtract 12 from each side. Simplify. Divide each side by –3. Simplify.

10
Example 3-2b Four times one number added to another number is –10. Three times the first number minus the second number is –11. Find the numbers. Answer: –3, 2

11
Example 3-3a`` Use elimination to solve the system of equations. Since the coefficients of the x terms, 4 and 4, are the same, you can eliminate the x terms by subtracting the equations. Write the equation in column form and subtract. Notice that the x value is eliminated. Divide each side by 5. Simplify.

12
Example 3-3a`` Now substitute 2 for y in either equation to find the value of x. Answer: The solution is (6, 2). Second equation Simplify. Add 6 to each side. Simplify. Divide each side by 4. Simplify.

13
Example 3-3b Use elimination to solve the system of equations. Answer: The solution is (2, –6).

14
Example 3-4a Multiple-Choice Test Item Ifandwhat is the value of y ? A (3, –8) B 3 C –8 D (–8, 3) Read the Test Item You are given a system of equations, and you are asked to find the value of y.

15
Example 3-4a Solve the Test Item You can eliminate the y terms by subtracting one equation from the other. Write the equation in column form and subtract. Notice that the y value is eliminated. Divide each side by 14. Simplify.

16
Example 3-4a Now substitute 3 for x in either equation to solve for y. Answer: C Notice that B is the value of x and A is the solution of the system of equations. However, the question asks for the value of y. First equation Simplify. Subtract 24 from each side. Simplify.

17
Example 3-4b Multiple-Choice Test Item Ifandwhat is the value of x ? A 4 B (4, –4) C (–4, 4) D –4 Answer: D
