1 3.2 Notes (part 1) Solving Systems Algebraically Warm-up Substitute 2y – 1 for x in each equation. Solve for y. 1) x + 2y = 3 2) 2y + 3x = -5 Objectives solve a system using substitution translate word problems into a system and solve Solving By Substitution: Must follow a series of steps to solve. .. = - = + 7 2 4 3 4 y x y x Solving by Substitution Here is a system Step 1: Solve for one of the variables. Solving the second equation for y is easiest. = - = + 7 2 4 3 4 y x y x Solving by Substitution y = 2x -7 Step 2: Substitute the expression for y into the other equation. Solve for x. = - = + 7 2 4 3 4 y x y x Solving by Substitution x = 2.5 Step 3: Substitute the value of x into either equation. Solve for y. Answer: (2.5, -2) = - = +
