 Solved by pluggable solver: Solving a linear system of equations by subsitution Lets start with the given system of linear equations Now in order to solve this system by using substitution, we need to solve (or isolate) one variable. I'm going to choose y. Solve for y for the first equation Subtract from both sides Divide both sides by -1. Which breaks down and reduces to Now we've fully isolated y Since y equals we can substitute the expression into y of the 2nd equation. This will eliminate y so we can solve for x. Replace y with . Since this eliminates y, we can now solve for x. Distribute 1 to Multiply Reduce any fractions Subtract from both sides Combine the terms on the right side Now combine the terms on the left side. Multiply both sides by . This will cancel out and isolate x So when we multiply and (and simplify) we get <---------------------------------One answer Now that we know that , lets substitute that in for x to solve for y Plug in into the 2nd equation Multiply Add to both sides Combine the terms on the right side Multiply both sides by .

Do you want to graph?

 Solved by pluggable solver: Graphing Linear Equations Start with the given equation Subtract from both sides Multiply both sides by Distribute Multiply Rearrange the terms Reduce any fractions So the equation is now in slope-intercept form () where (the slope) and (the y-intercept) So to graph this equation lets plug in some points Plug in x=-3 Multiply Add So here's one point (-3,9) Now lets find another point Plug in x=-2 Multiply Add So here's another point (-2,7). Add this to our graph Now draw a line through these points So this is the graph of through the points (-3,9) and (-2,7) So from the graph we can see that the slope is (which tells us that in order to go from point to point we have to start at one point and go down -2 units and to the right 1 units to get to the next point), the y-intercept is (0,)and the x-intercept is (,0) ,or (,0) . So all of this information verifies our graph. We could graph this equation another way. Since this tells us that the y-intercept (the point where the graph intersects with the y-axis) is (0,). So we have one point (0,) Now since the slope is , this means that in order to go from point to point we can use the slope to do so. So starting at (0,), we can go down 2 units and to the right 1 units to get to our next point Now draw a line through those points to graph So this is the graph of through the points (0,3) and (1,1)

-1,-3,-5,-9,-15,-45 ...List the negative factors as well. This will allow us to find all possible combinations

These factors pair up and multiply to 45
1*45
3*15
5*9
(-1)*(-45)
(-3)*(-15)
(-5)*(-9)

note: remember two negative numbers multiplied together make a positive number

Now which of these pairs add to 18? Lets make a table of all of the pairs of factors we multiplied and see which two numbers add to 18

(2)*(-50)
(4)*(-25)
(5)*(-20)
(-1)*(100)
(-2)*(50)
(-4)*(25)
(-5)*(20)

note: remember, the product of a negative and a positive number is a negative number

Now which of these pairs add to -15? Lets make a table of all of the pairs of factors we multiplied and see which two numbers add to -15

First NumberSecond NumberSum
1-1001+(-100)=-99
2-502+(-50)=-48
4-254+(-25)=-21
5-205+(-20)=-15
-1100-1+100=99
-250-2+50=48
-425-4+25=21
-520-5+20=15

From this list we can see that 5 and -20 add up to -15 and multiply to -100

Now looking at the expression , replace with (notice adds up to . So it is equivalent to )

Now let's factor by grouping:

Group like terms

Factor out the GCF of out of the first group. Factor out the GCF of out of the second group

Since we have a common term of , we can combine like terms

So factors to

So this also means that factors to (since is equivalent to )

So factors to

Factor out the GCF

Now let's focus on the inner expression

------------------------------------------------------------

Looking at we can see that the first term is and the last term is where the coefficients are 1 and 2 respectively.

Now multiply the first coefficient 1 and the last coefficient 2 to get 2. Now what two numbers multiply to 2 and add to the middle coefficient -1? Let's list all of the factors of 2:

Factors of 2:
1,2

-1,-2 ...List the negative factors as well. This will allow us to find all possible combinations

These factors pair up and multiply to 2
1*2
(-1)*(-2)

note: remember two negative numbers multiplied together make a positive number

Now which of these pairs add to -1? Lets make a table of all of the pairs of factors we multiplied and see which two numbers add to -1

First NumberSecond NumberSum
121+2=3
-1-2-1+(-2)=-3

None of these pairs of factors add to -1. So the expression cannot be factored

 Solved by pluggable solver: Graphing Linear Equations In order to graph we only need to plug in two points to draw the line So lets plug in some points Plug in x=-8 Multiply Add Reduce So here's one point (-8,-4) Now lets find another point Plug in x=-4 Multiply Add Reduce So here's another point (-4,-1). Add this to our graph Now draw a line through these points So this is the graph of through the points (-8,-4) and (-4,-1) So from the graph we can see that the slope is (which tells us that in order to go from point to point we have to start at one point and go up 3 units and to the right 4 units to get to the next point) the y-intercept is (0,)and the x-intercept is (,0) ,or (,0) We could graph this equation another way. Since this tells us that the y-intercept (the point where the graph intersects with the y-axis) is (0,). So we have one point (0,) Now since the slope is , this means that in order to go from point to point we can use the slope to do so. So starting at (0,), we can go up 3 units and to the right 4 units to get to our next point Now draw a line through those points to graph So this is the graph of through the points (0,2) and (4,5)

test/119540: This question is from textbook Algebra II
I really really need help and I've been searching over the internet for the best source to hepl me unfortunately my school exam on this is tomorrow. But it would really help to know how to do the problems. My main problem is in Chapter 3 of my book , on Solving Linear Systems Alegraically. I don't understand anything about it, it just confuses me .
such as 3x + 4y equals -4
x + 2y equals 2
and in the book it says to solve the linear system using the substituion method.
I'm having problems on problems like that and on graphing in section 3.3 of my book on Graphing and Solving Systems of Linear inequalities.
