1.7 - Solving Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities

Author: Kyle Webb

We frequently work with systems of equations on the coordinate plane.  For example, if we are interested in finding the point that represents the intersection of two lines we can solve the corresponding system of equations.  Formally, a system of equations is two or more equations that use the same variables.  In this section, we will see applications for systems of equations and learn methods for solving systems of equations and inequalities.
