### 3.1 Solving Linear Systems by Graphing

9/20/13

System of 2 Linear Equations:

A system consisting of two linear

equations in two variables.

Ex: 6x – 2y = 8

3x – y = 4

Solution of a system of 2 linear equations:

Is an ordered pair (x, y) that satisfies both equations.

Graphically, it’s the point where the lines intersect.

Tell whether the ordered pair (3, 4) is a solution of

-2x + y = -2

4x – 2y = 3

Substitute 3 for x and 4 for y in BOTH equations.

-2(3) + 4 = -2

- 6 + 4 = -2

4(3) – 2(4) = 3

12 – 8 = 3

Tell whether the ordered pair (3, 4) is a solution of

x + 2y = 11

2x – y = 2

Substitute 3 for x and 4 for y in BOTH equations.

3 + 2(4) = 11

3 + 8 = 11

2(3) – 4 = 2

6 – 4 = 2

Example 1

Solve a System by Graphing

Solve the system by graphing. Then check your solution.

You can check the solution by substituting -2for x and 5for y into the original equations.

y= - x + 3

5= -(-2) + 3

5= 5

y = 2 x + 9

5 = 2(-2) + 9

5 = -4 + 9

5 = 5

Standard  Slope Int Form

• Add or subtract the x – term on both sides of the equation.

• Divide everything by the coefficient of y if the coefficient is not 1.
