**The exact values can be found by solving the equations simultaneously**

Suppose we want to find where 2 lines meet. e.g and Sketching the lines gives The point of intersection has an x-value between -1 and 0 and a y-value between 3 and 4. The exact values can be found by solving the equations simultaneously 3

4
**Substituting into one of the original equations, we can find y:**

At the point of intersection, we notice that the x-values on both lines are the same and the y- values are also the same. As the y-values are the same, the right-hand sides of the equations must also be the same. Substituting into one of the original equations, we can find y: The point of intersection is

5
**Sometimes the equations first need to be rearranged:**

e.g. 2 Solution: Equation (2) can be written as Now, eliminating y between (1) and (2a) gives: Substituting into (1): The point of intersection is 5

6
Exercises Find the point of intersection of the following pairs of lines: 1. Solution: Eliminate y: Point of intersection is 2. Rearrange (1): Solution: Eliminate y: Point of intersection is
