Systems of Nonlinear Equations and Their Solutions
Background image of page 2
A system of two nonlinear equations in two variables, also called a nonlinear system, contains at least one equation that cannot be expressed in the form Ax+By=C. A solution of a nonlinear system in two variables is an ordered pair of real numbers that satisfies both equations in the system. The solution set of the system is the set of all such ordered pairs.

Eliminating a Variable Using the Substitution Method
Background image of page 4
The substitution method involves converting a nonlinear system to one equation in one variable by an appropriate substitution. The steps in the solution process are exactly the same as those used to solve a linear system by substitution. Since at least one equation is nonlinear you may get more than one point of intersection.

If necessary, we will multiply either equation or both equations by appropriate numbers so that the co By C + = 2 2 efficients of x or y will have a sum of 0. Again you may get more than one point of intersection.
