Solving Systems of Equations So far, we have solved systems using graphing and substitution. These notes show how to solve the system algebraically using ELIMINATION with addition and subtraction. Elimination is easiest when the equations are in standard form.

Solving a system of equations by elimination using addition and subtraction. Step 1 : Put the equations in Standard Form. Step 2 : Determine which variable to eliminate. Step 3 : Add or subtract the equations. Step 4 : Plug back in to find the other variable. Step 5 : Check your solution. Standard Form: Ax + By = C Look for variables that have the same coefficient. Solve for the variable. Substitute the value of the variable into the equation. Substitute your ordered pair into BOTH equations.
