Bell Ringer October 14, 2010 y = 7 – 2x 4x + y = 5 Step 1: Put the equations in Standard Form. 2x + y = 7 4x + y = 5 Step 2: Determine which variable to eliminate. The y’s have the same coefficient. Step 3: Add or subtract the equations. Subtract to eliminate y. 2x + y = 7 (-) 4x + y = 5 -2x = 2 x = -1

2) Solve the system using elimination. Step 4: Plug back in to find the other variable. y = 7 – 2x y = 7 – 2(-1) y = 9 Step 5: Check your solution. (-1, 9) (9) = 7 – 2(-1) 4(-1) + (9) = 5 y = 7 – 2x 4x + y = 5
