variables;

## • correctly determine if a given ordered pair is a solution

to a system of linear equations in two variables; and

System of Linear Equations
1 consist of at least two linear equations with one or two variables each; can be
written in the form where , , , , , and are real numbers, while and , and and
must not be both equal to zero

Example:
and are systems of linear equations with two variables.

System of Linear Equations
1 consist of at least two linear equations with one or two variables each; can be
written in the form where , , , , , and are real numbers, while and , and and
must not be both equal to zero

Example:
and are systems of linear equations with either one or two
variables.

## 2 Solution of System of Linear Equations

the ordered pair for which the values of and satisfy each of the equations in the
system of linear equations; it is the point of intersection of the two lines when
graphed in a Cartesian plane

Example:
The ordered pair , is a solution to the system

of and .

Solution:

## Since is a solution of the system, it follows that when and

are substituted to the equations of the system, the resulting
equation is a true statement.
