When we encounter a system of linear equations, we use graphing, substitution, elimination, or matrix methods. When we use the graphing method, we graph each equation separately, then find the point of intersection. This will be our solution for the system.
Test Objectives:•Demonstrate an understanding of a system of linear equations
