Lesson on Systems of Equations:

A - review. A linear system is formed by two or more linear equations. In chapter 5 you studied two
very specific types of systems of equations.

What are the names of the systems you already know? _____________________________ and

_______________________

How are their slopes related?

B - new. We can expand our view of systems by analyzing various lines with different slopes. Turn
to page 369. The table at the bottom of the page summarizes three categories of systems of linear
equations. On a graph, the solution to a linear system is represented by the intersection of the lines
corresponding to each equation. Compare the intersections of the three systems shown in the table.
Copy the table for your reference.

1. Set the equation to standard form by clicking on the STANDARD tab. Using the sliders, set
the first equation to 2x − y = −4 and the second equation to −x + 2y = −1.
1. Will all points on the line corresponding to 2x − y = −4 be valid solutions to this
linear system? Why or why not? Rewiew the meaning of “solution” above.

2. The x–intercept of 2x − y = −4 is (−2, 0). Find this point on the graph. Is the point
(−2, 0) also a solution to the equation −x + 2y = −1? Verify your answer
algebraically and on the graph.

3. Find a point on the graph whose coordinates are solutions to both equations in the
system.

4. Turn on Check solution at the point and drag the moveable point to this location to
5. Move the point to other locations on the graph. Do you expect to find other ordered
pairs that are solutions to the system of equations? Why or why not?

2. Determine algebraically if (1, −2) is a solution to the following system of equations: 2x − y =
4 and x − y = 2. Graph this system using the Gizmo to check your answer.
3. Set the equation to slope–intercept form by clicking on the SLOPE–INTERCEPT tab.

Using the sliders, set the first equation to y = 2x + 5 and the second equation to y = 2x + 7.

1. What do you notice about these two lines?

2. Will any of the points on the line corresponding to y = 2x + 5 be valid solutions to
this linear system? Why or why not?

3. Is there a valid solution to this linear system? Explain your answer.

4. Set the equation to standard form by clicking on the STANDARD tab. Using the sliders, set
the first equation to 2x − y = 3 and the second equation to −4x + 2y = −6.
1. What do you notice about these two lines?

2. Will all points on the line corresponding to 2x − y = 3 be valid solutions to this linear
system? Why or why not?
C. – summary and independent time

what you wrote make sense? Would a friend who was absent today be able to learn from your
work?

2. Highlight any areas questions or answers that you still don’t feel you understand.

3. Meeting our objectives.
a. What type of system has no, or 0, solutions? Explain with words, a system of equations,
and a graph. (three components to the answer)

b. What type of system has 1 solution? Explain with words, a system of equations, and a
graph. (three components to the answer)

c. What type of system has infinitely many solutions? Explain with words, a system of
equations, and a graph. (three components to the answer)
