Section 10.1: System of LINEAR equations: Two Equations containing Two Variables Instructor: Ms. Hoa Nguyen 1 Geometric View of Two Linear Equations containing Two Variables Reminder of Linear Equation : A linear equation containing two variables x, y is an equation of the form Ax + By = C , where A, B , and C are constants. The graph of a linear equation containing the variables x, y is a LINE in xy -space. Thus, a system of two linear equations containing the variables x, y is a PAIR of LINEs in xy -space. A system of two linear equations containing two variables : The above Figure shows 3 possible solutions of a system of two linear equations containing two variables: Exactly ONE solution (UNIQUE solution): the solution is given by the point of inter- section. NO solution. INFINITELY MANY solutions. Note : It is NOT possible for a linear system to have exactly two solutions. A system of equations is said to be consistent if the system has AT LEAST ONE solution.

### 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.
