2. Sketching straight lines Equations of the type y = x ; y = x + 3 ; y = 4x - 5; x + y = 2 are equations of straight lines . The general equation of a straight line is y = ax =b By finding the coordinates of some points which lie on the straight lines, plotting them and joining them up the graph of the straight line can be drawn.

3. Table of values To draw the graph of a straight line we must find the coordinates of some points which lie on the line.We do this by forming a table of values . Give the x coordinate a value and find the corresponding y coordinate for several points Make a table of values for the equation y = 2x + 1 1 2 3 0 3 7 1 5 So (0,1) (1,3) (2,5) and (3,7) all lie on the line with equation y=2x + 1 Now plot the points on a grid and join them up

4. . y Plot the points (0,1) (1,3) (2,5) and (3,7) on the grid 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 . Now join then up to give a straight line . . x 0 1 2 3 4 All the points on the line satisfy the equation y = 2x + 1

5. Sketching lines by finding where the lines cross the x axis and the y axis A quicker method Straight lines cross the x axis when the value of y = o Straight lines cross the y axis when the value of x =0 Sketch the line 2x + 3y = 6 Line crosses x axis when y = 0 Line crosses y axis when x = 0 2x + 0 =6 0 + 3y = 6 3y =6 2x =6 y = 2 x =3 at ( 3,0) at ( 0,2) Ex 2 page 124

6. Plot 0,2) and (3,0) and join them up with a straight line y 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 Now join then up to give a straight line . . x 0 1 2 3 4 All the points on the line satisfy the equation 2x + 3y = 6

7. Solving simultaneous equations by straight line graphs Two lines either meet at a point intersect or they are parallel they never meet To find where two lines meet draw the graphs of both lines on the same grid and read off the point of intersection

8. Find where the lines x + y = 5 and x – y =1 intersect get two points that lie on each line or better still three x + y = 5 0 1 5 x (0,5) and (5,0) and (1,4)lie on the line x + y = 5 y 5 4 0 x – y =1 0 4 1 x (0,-1) and (1,0) and ( 4,3) lie on the line y -1 3 0 Now plot the points and find where the two lines meet

9. y 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 -1 . . x + y =1 . (3,2) X x + y =5 . . x . 1 2 3 4 5 The lines intersect at (3,2)

10. If it is awkward to plot the coordinates of the points where the lines meet the axes if the coordinates are fractions If this is the case then find other points . Find where 2x-y = 7 and x + y = 5 meet y = 5-x 2x-y =7 5 -7 1 3 5 0 Plot the points and join them up find where the lines intersect Ex 3a and 3b page 125

11. Solving simultaneous equations algebraically Whoopee no more drawing graphs But you will have to learn a strategy to solve the equations Yikes!

12. Elimination method Solve the simultaneous equations algebraically HOW DO I SOLVE TWO EQUATIONS WITH TWO UNKNOWNS ? x + y = 8 x - y = 4 2x = 12 ADD the two equations together This gives one equation with one unknown which is easy to solve x = 6 ADD How do I find y. It is gone.It has been eliminated ?

13. SUBSTITUTE THE VALUE OF X INTO ONE OF YOUR EQUATIONS x = 6 x + y = 8 Now I have the solution 6 + y = 8 y = 2 Am I correct? Check by putting the values of x and y into , the other equation, x-y,and see if you get 4 6 – 2 = 4  Solution is x =6 and y = 2

14. Solve the simultaneous equations x + 3y = 7 x - 3y = -5 Remember to check ADD 2x = 2 x = 1 Substitute x =1 into x + 3y = 7 1 + 3y = 7 3y =6 1 – 3 X 2 y = 2 = 1 -6 Solution is x = 1 and y = 2 = -5 

15. EX 6 p128 Qu 1 to 9

16. Solve the simultaneous equations If I add I get another equation in x and y 3x + y = 8 x + y = 4 3x + 2=12 no use 3x + y = 8 -x -y = -4 Multiply one of the equations by ( -1) ADD 2x = 4 x = 2 It changes the sign of everything SUBSTITUTE Put x=2 into x + y =4 x + y = 4 2 + y = 4 3X2 + 2 = 8  y = 2 check Solution x = 2 and y = 2

17. Ex 6 page128 from qu 10

18. Slightly more difficult But not for you IF you have learned the work so far Solve the simultaneous equations Adding gives 5x + 5y = 55 no use 3x + 2y = 29 2x + 3y = 26 Multiplying by a negative does not eliminate any of the letters

19. Could I multiply and then add? That ‘s good let’s try it but be careful Remember when we add numbers together which are the negatives of each other they are eliminated

20. Solve the following simultaneous equations algebraically 3x + 2y = 292x + 3y = 26 Multiply the equations by two suitable numbers so that the coeficients of x or y are the negatives of each other We choose y to be eliminated X 3 3x + 2y = 292x + 3y = 26 X -2 Giving two new equivalent equations 9x +6y = 87 -4x + -6y = -52 Now add

21. 9x +6y = 87 -4x + -6y = -52 Remember practice makes perfect 5x = 35 ADD x = 7 check substitute x = 7 into 9x+6y = 87 -4 X 7 - 6X 4 = -28 –24 = -52  9 X 7 + 6y = 87 63 +6y = 87 6y = 24 y = 4 Ex 7B p 139 Solution x = 7 and y = 4

23. Problem Solving With Simultaneous Equations Example : The problem For the cinema 2 adults’ tickets and 5 children’s tickets cost £26 4 adults’ tickets and 2 children tickets cost £28 Find the cost of each kind of ticket. Introduce Letters Let the cost of adult ticket = £A Let the cost of children’s ticket = £C Write the equations

24. Solve the Problem using simultaneous equations check 2x5.5+5x3=11+15=26 Conclusion Adult Ticket costs £5.50 Children's tickets cost £3

25. strategy • Read the problem • Introduce two letters • Write two equations that describe the information • Solve the problem using simultaneous equations • check

26. Substitution method This an excellent method of solving simultaneous equations when the equations are given to you in a certain form Solve the equations y = 2x and y = x + 10 Example 1 We take the equation y = x + 10 And substitute 2x for y 2x = x + 10 Take out y and replace it with 2x x = 5 Sub x=5 into y=2x y = 10 Now solve the equation Solution x = 5 y = 10

27. Example 2 Solve the equations y = 2x –8 and y – x = 1 Sub y =2x-8 in the equation y - x = 1 2x –8 -x = 1 x – 8 = 1 x = 9 y = 18-8 Sub x = 9 in the equation y = 2x -8 y = 10 Solution x = 9 and y =10 Check 10 –9 =1
