Review the PowerPoint
Complete the First 10 problems on the worksheet that is attached
To solve a system of equations by elimination:
First Add the two equations together to eliminate one of the variables.
Secondly: Solve for the variable that remains
Thirdly: Substitute this value into one of the two equations for the variable.
Finally: Solve for the other variable
These two values will be the intersection point of these two lines, and will be the solution to this system of equations
