Chapter 3 –Systems of Linear Equations
3.2 – Solving Linear Systems by Substitution

3.2 – Solving Linear Systems by Substitution
Today we will review: Solving a system of linear equations in two variables by substitution

3.2 – Solving Linear Systems by Substitution
Substitute (real-life) – Replace one thing with another Substitute – Replace one variable with an expression containing the other variable

3.2 – Solving Linear Systems by Substitution
Steps for Solving a Linear System by Substitution Solve for one of the variables (the one with no coefficient (number in front)) Substitute the value from the step 1 into the other equation & solve for the other variable Substitute the value from step 2 into the revised equation from step 1 and solve Check the solution

3.2 – Solving Linear Systems by Substitution
Example 1 Solve the system using substitution y = 4x -2x + y = -4

3.2 – Solving Linear Systems by Substitution
Example 2 Solve the system using substitution 3x + 2y = 1 -2x + y = 4

3.2 – Solving Linear Systems by Substitution
Example 3 In one week, a pizza restaurant sold 210 pizzas and made \$ The price of a small is \$12 and the price of a large pizza is \$15. How many small pizzas and large pizzas were sold last week?
