Solving Systems of Linear Equations using Elimination

Solving Systems of Linear Equations using Elimination 1.1 - Solution

arrow_back Return to Solving Systems of Linear Equations using Elimination
We want to solve the system using the elimination method. We then need to eliminate one of the variable terms by adding or subtracting the equations. We can see that the -terms in this system will eliminate each other if we subtract Equation (II) from Equation (I). Let's do that! We find by solving the resulting equation. We find by substituting the value of into either of the original equations and solve the resulting equation for Let's use Equation (I).
The solution to the system of equations is
