# Solving for Systems of Linear Equations

Create a system of linear equations from my own life. Keep in mind that a system of linear equations will consist of two equations using the same variables and the variables will represent the same thing for both equations, i.e., if you use X as a variable in the first equation and X represents a number of Beers then you need to use X in the second equation and it needs to represent the number of Beers in the second equation. Create your system of linear equations and then write a brief paper describing the system. Is this a consistent system or inconsistent system? Please explain.

#### Solution Preview

Yesterday we went to a restaurant with my friends. We were having some burgers and drinks. I invited them, so I was supposed to pick up the bill. The total for the drinks and the burgers was \$81. Since I didn't have enough cash on me, Bob offered to pay for half of the drinks, and I just had to pay the remaining 58 dollars. Now I wonder, how much the drinks were and how much the burgers were at the ...
