1 7.2 Solve Linear Systems by Substitution Solve systems of linear equations by substitution. Determine what the solution means in a system of equations.

2 Solve the equation. 1.6a – 3 + 2a = (n + 2) – n = 11 ANSWER

3 3. You burned 8 calories per minute on a treadmill and 10 calories per minute on an elliptical trainer for a total of 560 calories in 60 minutes. How many minutes did you spend on each machine? ANSWER

4 A pet store sells angel fish for $6 each and clown loaches for $4 each. If the pet store sold 8 fish for $36, how many of each type of fish did it sell ? 3.

6 EXAMPLE 1 Use the substitution method Solve the linear system: y = 3x + 2 Equation 2 Equation 1 x + 2y = 11 SOLUTION

7 EXAMPLE 1 Use the substitution method Substitute 3x + 2 for y in Equation 2 and solve for x. STEP 2

8 EXAMPLE 1 Use the substitution method ANSWER Substitute 1 for x in the original Equation 1 to find the value of y. STEP 3

9 GUIDED PRACTICE CHECK Substitute 1 for x and 5 for y in each of the original equations. EXAMPLE 1 Use the substitution method

10 EXAMPLE 2 Use the substitution method Solve the linear system : x – 2y = –6 Equation 1 4x + 6y = 4 Equation 2 SOLUTION

11 EXAMPLE 2 Use the substitution method Substitute 2y – 6 for x in Equation 2 and solve for y. STEP 2

12 EXAMPLE 2 Use the substitution method Substitute 2 for y in the revised Equation 1 to find the value of x. ANSWER STEP 3

13 GUIDED PRACTICE CHECK Substitute –2 for x and 2 for y in each of the original equations. Equation 1 Equation 2 EXAMPLE 2 Use the substitution method

14 EXAMPLE 1 Use the substitution method Solve the linear system using the substitution method. 3x + y = 10 y = 2x GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 ANSWER

15 EXAMPLE 2 Use the substitution method –2x + 4y = 0 GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 3x + y = –7 3. Solve the linear system using the substitution method. ANSWER

16 EXAMPLE 3 Solve a multi-step problem Many businesses pay website hosting companies to store and maintain the computer files that make up their websites. Internet service providers also offer website hosting. The costs for website hosting offered by a website hosting company and an Internet service provider are shown in the table. Find the number of months after which the total cost for website hosting will be the same for both companies. WEBSITES

17 Solve a multi-step problem EXAMPLE 3 SOLUTION Write a system of equations. Let y be the total cost after x months. Equation 1 : Internet service provider STEP 1

18 Solve a multi-step problem EXAMPLE 3 Equation 2 : Website hosting company

19 Solve a multi-step problem EXAMPLE 3 Substitute 22.00x for y in Equation 1 and solve for x. STEP 2
