3.1 Solving Systems Using Tables and Graphs When you have two or more related unknowns, you may be able to represent their relationship with a system of equations – a set of two or more equations. To solve a system of equations, find a set of values that replace the variables in the equations and make each equation true. A linear system consists of linear equations. A solution of a system is a set of values for the variables that makes all the equations true. You can solve a system of equations graphically or by using tables.

Using a Graph or Table to Solve a System What is the solution of the system? -3x + 2y = 8 x + 2y = -8 Method 1 - Graph the equations. Find the point of intersection. ( - 4, - 2) is the solution of the system.

Classifying a System of Linear Equations A consistent system has at least one solution. – An independent system has one solution. – A dependent system has infinitely many solutions. An inconsistent system has no solution. The graphs for an inconsistent system are parallel lines. So, there are no solutions. For a dependent system, the two equations represent the same line.
