```1.1 Solving Linear Systems by
Graphing
9/14/12
Vocabulary
System of 2
Linear Equations:
A system consisting of two linear
equations in two variables.
Ex: 6x – 2y = 8
3x – y = 4
Solution of a system
of 2 linear equations:
Is an ordered pair (x, y) that
satisfies both equations.
Graphically, it’s the point where
the lines intersect.
Example 1
Solve a System by Graphing
Solve the system by graphing. Then check your
solution algebraically.
Equation 1
3x – y = 3
ANSWER
Equation 2
x + 2y = 8
( 2, 3 )
Example 1
Solve a System by Graphing
You can check the solution by substituting 2 for x and 3
for y into the original equations.
Equation 1
Equation 2
3x – y = 3
x + 2y = 8
3( 2) – 3 =? 3
? 8
2 + 2( 3) =
? 3
6 – 3=
? 8
2 +6 =
3=3
8=8
ANSWER
The solution of the system is ( 2, 3 ).
