Start with the given system of equations: Add the equations together. You can do this by simply adding the two left sides and the two right sides separately like this: Group like terms. Combine like terms. Simplify. Divide both sides by to isolate . Reduce. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Now go back to the first equation. Plug in . Multiply. Add to both sides. Combine like terms on the right side. Divide both sides by to isolate . Reduce. So the solutions are and . Which form the ordered pair . This means that the system is consistent and independent. Notice when we graph the equations, we see that they intersect at . So this visually verifies our answer. Graph of (red) and (green)
