CHAPTER 5 5-2 SOLVING SYSTEMS BY SUBSTITUTION

2
OBJECTIVES Solve systems of linear equations in two variables by substitution.

3
SUBSTITUTION METHOD Sometimes it is difficult to identify the exact solution to a system by graphing. In this case, you can use a method called substitution. The goal when using substitution is to reduce the system to one equation that has only one variable. Then you can solve this equation by the methods taught in previous lessons.

4
Step 1 Solve for one variable in at least one equation, if necessary. Substitute the resulting expression into the other equation. Solve that equation to get the value of the first variable. Substitute that value into one of the original equations and solve. Write the values from steps 3 and 4 as an ordered pair, (x, y), and check.

5
EXAMPLE#1 Solve the system by substitution y = 3x y = x – 2

6
EXAMPLE#2 Solve the system by substitution. y = x + 1 4x + y = 6

7
EXAMPLE#3 Solve the system by substitution. x + 2y = –1 x – y = 5

8
DISTRIBUTIVE PROPERTY Sometimes you substitute an expression for a variable that has a coefficient. When solving for the second variable in this situation, you can use the Distributive Property.

9
EXAMPLE#4 y + 6x = 11 3x + 2y = –5 Solve by substitution.

10
EXAMPLE –2x + y = 8 3x + 2y = 9 Solve by substitution.

CONSUMER APPLICATION Jenna is deciding between two cell-phone plans. The first plan has a $50 sign-up fee and costs $20 per month. The second plan has a $30 sign-up fee and costs $25 per month. After how many months will the total costs be the same? What will the costs be? If Jenna has to sign a one-year contract, which plan will be cheaper? Explain.

12
APPLICATION One cable television provider has a $60 setup fee and charges $80 per month, and the second has a $160 equipment fee and charges $70 per month. A. In how many months will the cost be the same? What will that cost be. B. If you plan to move in 6 months, which is the cheaper option? Explain.
