Methods of Solving Systems of Equations

When solving a system of equations, what are the 3 possible outcomes? Describe how you can determine each of the possible outcomes using one of the algebraic methods. Do not look at the graph. Do not look at the individual equations, just look at the outcome, the "answer" you get after using substitution or elimination/a

Systems of Equations

Systems of equations can be solved by graphing or by using substitution or elimination. What are the pros and cons of each method? Which method do you like best? Why? What circumstances would cause you to use a different method? Review examples 2, 3, and 4 in section 8.4 of the text. How does the author determine what the

Real-Life Application of a Linear Equation

Linear equations provide information on how quickly data is rising or falling, known as the slope of the equation. Find a real-world application of a linear equation and discuss the meaning of the equation. Explain how the values of the slope affect the overall meaning of the equation.
