Goal: Solve systems of linear equations using elimination. Eligible Content: A220.127.116.11.1 / A18.104.22.168.2
Elimination Method – the process of adding two equations together to get a variable to cancel out. Also called the Linear Combinations Method. Opposites – two numbers that are the same distance from 0.
1. Multiply one or both equations by any numbers that will give you opposite coefficients for a variable. 2. Add the two equations together and solve for the remaining variable. 3. Plug your answer from Step 2 into any equation to solve for the other variable. 4. Write your answer as an ordered pair. 5. Check your answer.
