Solving System of Equations

Learning Objective

On this page you will learn how to solve systems of two equations in two variables by:

1) Graphing

2) Linear Combination or Elimination

3) Substitution

Definition

A system of equation in two variables consists of two linear equations of the form

The solution is the region that has the collection of ordered pairs (x,y) that satisfies both equations. The best way to solve systems of linear inequalities is by graphing since the solution if it exists could be a line or region.

2. Find the feasible region of the two regions by using arrows.

3. The intersection of the feasible regions from the two graphs represents the solution to the system of linear inequalities.
