1.1 Solving Linear Systems by Graphing 9/14/12

Solution of a system of 2 linear equations: Is an ordered pair (x, y) that satisfies both equations. Graphically, it’s the point where the lines intersect. Vocabulary System of 2 Linear Equations: A system consisting of two linear equations in two variables. Ex: 6x – 2y = 8 3x – y = 4

Example 1 Solve a System by Graphing Solve the system by graphing. Then check your solution algebraically. 33x3x–y = 8x+2y2y = Equation 1 Equation 2 ANSWER () 2, 3

Example 1 Solve a System by Graphing You can check the solution by substituting 2 for x and 3 for y into the original equations. Equation 1Equation 2 33x3x–y = 8x+ 2y2y = () 233–3 = ? 28 + = ? () 32 36–3 = ? 28 + = ? 6 33 = 88 = ANSWER ( ).). 2, 3 The solution of the system is
