# Solving Systems

### Solving Systems of Linear Equations by Addition and in Three Variables

Question | Answer |
---|---|

The method of solving systems of linear equations, in which the two equations are added together to eliminate one of the variables, called "....." | Addition Method if A=B and C=D => A+C=B+D |

Solve the following system using addition method x-y=2 x+y=8 | (x-y=2) + ( x+y=8) 1)2x=10 2) x=5 3) x+y=8; 5+y=8; y=8-5; y=3 Check. 5-3=2; 2=2 true 5+3=8: 8=8 true (5,3) - solution |

Solve the following system using addition method x-2y=11 3x-y=13 | Multiply first equation by (-3) 1) x-2y=11 2) (-3)*(x-2y)=(-3)*11 3) -3x+6y=-33 4)add -3x+6y=-33 to 3x-y=13 5) 5y=-20 ; y=-4 6) x-2y=11 ; x=11+2y; x=11+2*(-4)=3 Check. 3-2*(-4)=11 true 3*3-(-4)=13 true (3,-4) - solution |

Solve the following system using addition method x-3y=5 2x-6y=-3 | Multiply first equation by (-2) 1) x-3y=5 2) (-2)*(x-3y)=(-2)*5 3) -2x+6y=-10 4) add -2x+6y=-10 to 2x-6y=-3 5) 0=-13 false This is an inconsistent system (two parallel lines) with no solution (with no intersection point). |

Solve the following system using addition method 4x-3y=5 -8x+6y=-10 | Multiply first equation by 2 1)4x-3y=5 2) 2*(4x-3y)=5*2 3) 8x -6y=10 4) add 8x -6y=10 to -8x+6y=-10 5) 0=0 true System has infinite number of solutions. Graphs of this equations are identical |

Solve the following system using addition method 4x+3y=14 3x-2y=2 | Multiply first equation by (-3) and second by 4 1) 4x+3y=14 2) (-3)*(4x+3y)=14*(-3) 3) -12x-9y=-42 4) 3x-2y=2 5) 4*(3x-2y)=2*4 6) 12x-8y=8 7) add -12x-9y=-42 to 12x-8y=8 8) -17y=-34; y=2 8) 4x+3y=14 ; 4x=14-3y; 4x=14-3*2; 4x=8; x=2 (2,2) - solution |
