Intermediate Algebra Exam 1 Review 5.5 Solving linear systems of two equations by graphing Be able to find either: x-intercept and y-intercept for each of the equations. Or be able to find the slope- intercept, y = mx + b, equation of the line for each equation in the system. In the example, the two lines cross at the ordered pair (- 1,1) which is the solution. Additionally, be able to verify an ordered pair as a solution to a system of equations. Example: + = 2x 3y 1 - =- 4x 3y 7 Solving linear systems of two equations by substitution From p. 235 in the text. Step 1: Solve one of the equations for one variable in terms of the other variable if neither equation is in such a form. (If possible, make a choice that will avoid fractions.) Step 2: Substitute the expression obtained in step 1 into the other equation. This produces an equation in one variable. Step 3: Solve the equation obtained in step 2. (2x+3y=1) (4x-3y=-7) 2x+3y=1 subtract 2x from both sides -2x -2x 3y = -2x + 1 divide both sides by 3 /3 /3 /3 =- + y 23x 13 y is now isolated. - 4x 3 - + 23x 13 =- 7 4x + 2x -1 = -7 distribute the - 3 6x -1 = -7 combine like terms 6x = -6 add 1 to both sides

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
