“Substitution” 0 What does it mean to substitute? 0 Definition: In Algebra "Substitution" means putting numbers where the letters are.

4
Using the Substitution Method

5
Example 1 Equation Onex + y = 8 Equation Two x + 2y = 10 Solve for one variable Step 1: Select one equation. Solve for one variable to be isolated on one side of the equal sign. x + y = 8 subtract y from both sides -y -y x = 8 - y

6
Substitute Step 2: Substitute this expression into the second equation to find the value of the one variable. Equation one: x = 8 – y Equation two: x + 2y = 10 New equation : (8 – y) + 2y = 10 Combine like Terms (8 – y) + 2y = 10 8 + y = 10 Subtract 8 -8 -8 y = 2

7
Substitute Step 3: Substitute this value to find the value of the other variable. y = 2 x + y = 8 x + 2 = 8 Subtract 2 -2 -2 x = 6

8
Final Solution: ( 6, 2 ) Check: Plug both values into one of the original equations. x + y = 8 6 + 2 = 8 8 = 8
