For two equations in two variables, the set of ordered pairs that satisfy both equations is the solution set of the system. Solving by graphing: The line for each equation is graphed on the same plane. If the lines cross at one point , the ordered pair that describes that point is the solution set; the system in independent . If the lines are parallel , there is no solution ; the system in inconsistent . If the two lines are the same , there are infinitely many solutions ; the system is dependent . Determine whether the ordered pair is a solution to the system: 1. (3, 4); 3 4 25 5 2 7 x y x y = + = 2.
