Solving systems of equations worksheets: a few things to keep in mind and/or remember.

Solving systems of linear equations worksheets

What is solving by substitution?

You can solve by substitution when you plug in either the value of x or the value of y into one of the two equations.

Example:

x = y + 1

y + x = 21

Here, you can just replace the value of x or y + 1 in y + x = 21

y + y + 1 = 21

2y + 1 = 21

2y = 20

y = 10 and x  = y + 1 = 10 + 1 = 11 

What is solving by elimination?

You can solve by elimination when you eliminate either x or y by adding the two equations. We may need to rewrite one or both equations!

Example:

x = y + 1

y + x = 21

Let us rewrite x = y + 1 as x - y = 1 and then add the two equations to eliminate y.

x - y = 1

y + x = 21

Let us add the two equations.

2x - y + y = 1 + 21

2x + 0 = 22

2x = 22

x = 11

Using y + x = 21, y + 11 = 21, so y = 21 - 11 = 10.
