1 3.1 Notes Graphing Systems of Equations Warm-up: Graph each equation on one coordinate plane. 1) y = 3x -2 2) y = -x 3) 2x – y = -1 Warm-up 1) y = 3x -2 2) y = -x 3) 2x – y = -1 What is a system of equations? Objective: Solve a system by graphing. System of Equations: a set of two or more equations that use the same variables Linear System – each equation in a system of two variables is a line. Example: a brace is used to keep equations of a system together. + - = + = 3 2 3 x y x y What is a solution to a system of equations in two variables? o * The solution to a system is a set of values that make all the equations true o * In a linear system the solution is the point of intersection (x, y) o One way to find a solution is to graph both lines and find where they intersect. – SOLVE BY GRAPHING. Let’s try solving!
