§ 4.1 Solving Systems of Linear Equations by Graphing
Martin-Gay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 3 Systems of Linear Equations A system of linear equations consists of two or more linear equations. This section focuses on only two equations at a time. The solution of a system of linear equations in two variables is any ordered pair that solves both of the linear equations.

Martin-Gay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 4 Determine whether the given point is a solution of the following system. point: (– 3, 1) system: x y = – 4 and 2 x + 10 y = 4 Plug the values into the equations. First equation: – 3 1 = – 4 true Second equation: 2( – 3 ) + 10( 1 ) = – 6 + 10 = 4 true Since the point ( 3, 1) produces a true statement in both equations, it is a solution. Solution of a System Example :
Martin-Gay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 5 Determine whether the given point is a solution of the following system point: (4, 2) system: 2 x – 5 y = – 2 and 3 x + 4 y = 4 Plug the values into the equations. First equation: 2( 4 ) – 5( 2 ) = 8 – 10 = – 2 true Second equation: 3( 4 ) + 4( 2 ) = 12 + 8 = 20 4 false Since the point (4, 2) produces a true statement in only one equation, it is NOT a solution. Solution of a System Example :

### 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.
