Systems of Linear Equations Systems of Linear Equations d Matrices d Matrices and Matrices and Matrices There are three major topics in this Module: y Introduction to Systems of Linear Equations y Gaussian Elimination y Matrices and Matrix Operations A Quick Review A Quick Review y A linear equation in two variables can be written in the form ax + by = k , where a , b , and k are constants, and a and b are not equal to . Note : The power of the variables is always 1 . • Two or more linear equations is called a system of linear equations because they involve solving more than one linear equation at once. • A system of linear equations can have either exactly one solution (unique), no solution, or infinitely many solutions. Let’s Look at a System of Two Linear Equations Let’s Look at a System of Two Linear Equations in Two Variables in Two Variables Possible Graphs of a System of Two Linear Equations in Two Variables How to Use the Elimination Method How to Use the Elimination Method Solve a System of Linear Equations? Solve a System of Linear Equations? to Solve a System of Linear Equations? to Solve a System of Linear Equations? Example: Use elimination to solve each system of equations , if possible. Identify the system as consistent or inconsistent. If the system is consistent, support your results graphically.
