Solving Systems by Graphing or Substitution.
Objective: To solve a system of linear equations in two variables by graphing or by substitution.

System of Equations A system of equations is a collection of equations in the same variables.

System of Equations A system of equations is a collection of equations in the same variables. The solution of a system of two linear equations in x and y is any ordered pair, (x, y), that satisfies both equations. The solution (x, y) is also the point of intersection for the graphs of the lines in the system. For example, the ordered pair (2, -1) is the solution of the system below.

Try This If a 7% saline solution and a 4% saline solution are mixed to make 500 milliliters of a 5% solution, how much of each solution, to the nearest milliliter, is needed?

Try This If a 7% saline solution and a 4% saline solution are mixed to make 500 milliliters of a 5% solution, how much of each solution, to the nearest milliliter, is needed? You need two equations. x represents the 7% solution. y represents the 4% solution.
