The graph shows a system of linear equations
The graph shows a system of linear equations. As you can see, without the use of technology, determining the solution from the graph is not easy. You can use the substitution method to find an exact solution. In substitution, you solve one equation for one variable and then substitute this expression into the other equation.

Example 1A: Solving Linear Systems by Substitution
Use substitution to solve the system of equations. y = x – 1 x + y = 7 Step 1 Solve one equation for one variable. The first equation is already solved for y: y = x – 1. Step 2 Substitute the expression into the other equation. x + y = 7 x + (x – 1) = 7 Substitute (x –1) for y in the other equation. 2x – 1 = 7 Combine like terms. 2x = 8 x = 4

Example 1A Continued Step 3 Substitute the x-value into one of the original equations to solve for y. y = x – 1 y = (4) – 1 Substitute x = 4. y = 3 The solution is the ordered pair (4, 3).

You can also solve systems of equations with the elimination method
You can also solve systems of equations with the elimination method. With elimination, you get rid of one of the variables by adding or subtracting equations. You may have to multiply one or both equations by a number to create variable terms that can be eliminated. The elimination method is sometimes called the addition method or linear combination.

In Lesson 3–1, you learned that systems may have infinitely many or no solutions. When you try to solve these systems algebraically, the result will be an identity or a contradiction. An identity, such as 0 = 0, is always true and indicates infinitely many solutions. A contradiction, such as 1 = 3, is never true and indicates no solution. Remember!

Example 3: Solving Systems with Infinitely Many or No Solutions
Classify the system and determine the number of solutions. 3x + y = 1 2y + 6x = –18 Because isolating y is straightforward, use substitution. 3x + y = 1 y = 1 –3x Solve the first equation for y. 2(1 – 3x) + 6x = –18 Substitute (1–3x) for y in the second equation. 2 – 6x + 6x = –18 Distribute. 2 = –18 x Simplify. Because 2 is never equal to –18, the equation is a contradiction. Therefore, the system is inconsistent and has no solution.

Example 3a Classify the system and determine the number of solutions. 56x + 8y = –32 7x + y = –4 Because isolating y is straightforward, use substitution. 7x + y = –4 y = –4 – 7x Solve the second equation for y. 56x + 8(–4 – 7x) = –32 Substitute (–4 –7x) for y in the first equation. 56x – 32 – 56x = –32 Distribute. –32 = –32 Simplify. Because –32 is equal to –32, the equation is an identity. The system is consistent, dependent and has infinite number of solutions.

Example 3b Classify the system and determine the number of solutions. 6x + 3y = –12 2x + y = –6 Because isolating y is straightforward, use substitution. 2x + y = –6 y = –6 – 2x Solve the second equation. 6x + 3(–6 – 2x)= –12 Substitute (–6 – 2x) for y in the first equation. 6x –18 – 6x = –12 Distribute. –18 = –12 x Simplify. Because –18 is never equal to –12, the equation is a contradiction. Therefore, the system is inconsistent and has no solutions.

Example 4: Zoology Application
A veterinarian needs 60 pounds of dog food that is 15% protein. He will combine a beef mix that is 18% protein with a bacon mix that is 9% protein. How many pounds of each does he need to make the 15% protein mixture? Let x present the amount of beef mix in the mixture. Let y present the amount of bacon mix in the mixture.

Example 4 Continued Write one equation based on the amount of dog food: Amount of beef mix plus amount of bacon mix equals x y 60. 60 + = Write another equation based on the amount of protein: Protein of beef mix plus protein of bacon mix equals 0.18x 0.09y protein in mixture. 0.15(60) + =

Example 4 Continued x + y = 60 0.18x +0.09y = 9 Solve the system. x + y = 60 First equation y = 60 – x Solve the first equation for y. 0.18x (60 – x) = 9 Substitute (60 – x) for y. 0.18x – 0.09x = 9 Distribute. 0.09x = 3.6 Simplify. x = 40

Example 4 Continued Substitute x into one of the original equations to solve for y. Substitute the value of x into one equation. 40 + y = 60 y = 20 Solve for y. The mixture will contain 40 lb of the beef mix and 20 lb of the bacon mix.
