A solution of a system of equations consists of values of the variables that satisfy each equation in the system. To Solve a system is to find all solutions of the system. A system is consistent if it has at least one solution; otherwise it is called inconsistent . Def. A system of the form uni007B.alt04 u1D44E 1 u1D465 + u1D44F 1 u1D466 = u1D450 1 u1D44E 2 u1D465 + u1D44F 2 u1D466 = u1D450 2 is a system of two linear equations in two variables . The solution set of the system is all ordered pairs ( u1D465, u1D466 ) that satisfy the system. Solving by Graphing ex. Solve each system: 1) uni007B.alt03 u1D465 + 2 u1D466 = 4 u1D465 u1D466 = 1 2) uni007B.alt03 u1D465 u1D466 = 1 2 u1D465 + 2 u1D466 = 2 3) uni007B.alt03 u1D465 + u1D466 = 3 u1D465 + u1D466 = 2 We have three possibilities: 1. The lines intersect at one point. The system is1....
