Solving Systems of Equations

This topic can be difficult and time consuming, but with the right method each system can solve quickly and easily.

What is the best method for solving each system of equation?

y = -x + 4                      y = 2x – 8

  • Graphing
  • Substitution
  • Elimination

y = 3x + 1                    2x + 3y = 25

  • Graphing
  • Substitution
  • Elimination

4x – 5y = 14                -4x + y = -6

  • Graphing
  • Substitution
  • Elimination

Solve the system of equation by graphing.

y = -x + 4                                 y = 2x – 8

The answer is
