Free Powerpoint Templates Page 2 System of two linear equations: two linear equations in two variables x and y consists of equations on the following form: Ax + By = CEquation 1 Dx + Ey = FEquation 2 Solution: a solution of a system of linear equations in two variables is an ordered pair (x, y) that satisfies both equations. Checking a Solution: In order to check to see if an ordered pair is a solution for the system you must plug in the ordered pair to both equations. Then it is a solution if the ordered pair works for both of the equations. Example 1: Check whether (a) (1,4) and (b) (-5, 0) are solutions of the following system. x – 3y = –5 –2x + 3y = 10

Estimate the coordinates of the point of intersection. Check the coordinates algebraically by substituting into each equation of the original linear system. Example 2: Solve the systems by the graphing method. a. 2x – 2y = –8 2x + 2y = 4 b. –4x – 3y = –12 4x + 2y = 8

GRAPHICAL ALGEBRAIC INTERPRETATION The graph of the system The system has exactly one is a pair of lines that intersect solution in one point The graph of the system is a The system has infinitely single linemany solutions The graph of the system is a The system has no solution pair of parallel lines so that there is no point of intersection.
