Now, we will work with more than variable and more than one equation. These are called systems of equations. When answering a system of equations, you need to give the value for each variable.</p> <h2>Solving Systems of Linear Equations</h2> <p>When we're through covering the two chapters on solving systems of equations, there will be six ways that we can use to solve a system of linear equations </p> <dl> <dt>Graphically</dt> <dd>Graph both equations and find the intersection point.</dd> <dd>Inaccurate by hand.</dd> <dd>Useful when using technology.</dd> <dd>More appropriate for non-linear systems.</dd> <dd>Must solve for the equation for y first.</dd> <dt>Substitution</dt> <dd>Solve one equation for one variable and then substitute that into the other equation.</dd> <dd>Best algebraic technique for non-linear systems.</dd> <dd>Works well when a variable can be solved for easily, has a coefficient
