Holt McDougal Algebra 2 3-1 Using Graphs and Tables to Solve Linear Systems A system of equations is a set of two or more equations containing two or more variables. A linear system is a system of equations containing only linear equations. Recall that a line is an infinite set of points that are solutions to a linear equation. The solution of a system of equations is the set of all points that satisfy each equation.

Holt McDougal Algebra 2 3-1 Using Graphs and Tables to Solve Linear Systems On the graph of the system of two equations, the solution is the set of points where the lines intersect. A point is a solution to a system of equation if the x- and y-values of the point satisfy both equations.

Holt McDougal Algebra 2 3-1 Using Graphs and Tables to Solve Linear Systems Use substitution to determine if the given ordered pair is an element of the solution set for the system of equations. Example 1A: Verifying Solutions of Linear Systems (1, 3); x – 3y = –8 3x + 2y = 9 Substitute 1 for x and 3 for y in each equation. Because the point is a solution for both equations, it is a solution of the system. 3x + 2y = 9 3(1) +2(3) 9 9 9 x – 3y = –8 (1) –3(3) –8–8 –8–8–8–8

Holt McDougal Algebra 2 3-1 Using Graphs and Tables to Solve Linear Systems The systems of equations in Example 2 have exactly one solution. However, linear systems may also have infinitely many or no solutions. A consistent system is a set of equations or inequalities that has at least one solution, and an inconsistent system will have no solutions.

Holt McDougal Algebra 2 3-1 Using Graphs and Tables to Solve Linear Systems You can classify linear systems by comparing the slopes and y-intercepts of the equations. An independent system has equations with different slopes. A dependent system has equations with equal slopes and equal y-intercepts.
