Unit 7 Linear Relations By: Karina Greenwood and Celeste English

Linear equation in two unknowns x and y is an equation of the form

ax + by = c

where a, b, and c are numbers

ex: 4x + 5y = 0

This has a = 4, b = 5, c = 0

When you have two variables and enough information for two equations, we can create a system of equations

A solution of Linear Systems is a pair of values that satisfy both equations

Example:

4x + 5y = 40

x-y = 1

This is a system of two linear equations with solution x = 5, y = 4.

We can also write the solution as (5, 4) Part One: Representing Linear Systems The solutions to a single linear equation are the points on its graph, which is a straight line. For a point to represent a solution to two linear equations, it must lie simultaneously on both of the corresponding lines.

To locate solutions to a system of two equations in two unknowns, plot the graphs, and locate the intersection points (if any). Part Two: Solving Graphically Part Three: Solving Systems using Substitution The method of elimination is an algebraic way of obtaining the exact solution(s) of a system of equations in two unknowns by manipulating the equations in such a way as to eliminate of the variables (x or y).

In other words: We can eliminate one variable by subtracting or adding the two equations Part Four: Solving by Elimination Part 5: Properties of Linear Systems The problem with the graphical approach is that it only gives approximate solutions; locating the exact point of intersection of two lines would require perfect accuracy, which is impossible in practice. We can transform a system of two linear equations into a single equation with one variable Ex: y = 3x + 2 7x – 4y = 7 Step One: Notice how one of the variables is isolated. We can use this information and input it into the other equation, instead of the variable.

y = 3x + 2

7x – 4(3x + 2) = 7 Step Two: Solve the resulting equation.

7x – 4(3x + 2) = 7

7x – 12x – 8 = 7

– 5x– 8 = 7

– 5x = 7 + 8

– 5x = 15

– 5 – 5

x = – 3 Step Three: Input the new value into either of the equations and solve for the missing variable.

7 (-3) – 4y = 7

-21 – 4y = 7

- 4y = 7 + 21

- 4y = 28

- 4 -4

y = - 7 y = 3 (-3) + 2

y = -9 +2

y = -7 Step One: Make sure both equations are in standard form (Ax + By = C) x + 2y = 9

– x + 3y = 16 Step Two: Decide on addition or subtraction so that one of the variables (in our case x) will cancel each other out. Step Three: Now solve for the remaining variable

y = 5 Step Four: Using one of the original equations, input the new value for the variable solved in the earlier steps.

- x + 3(5) = 16

-x + 15 = 16

–x = 16 - 15

-x = 1

x = -1 x + 2 (5) = 9

x + 10 = 9

x = 9 – 10

x = -1 So the solution for the system (x, y) = (-1, 5) TRY:

4x – 3y = 25

–3x + 8y = 10 Answer y = 5 x = 10 The solution is (10,5) There are 3 possibilities of solutions when graphing. Single solution: Where the slopes are different but the y-intercept can be the same. These lines can also be perpendicular, which means they intersect; their lines form a 90-degree angle, they are also negative reciprocals of each other. No Solution: They would have the same slope, but different y-intercepts. When they have no solution the lines are parallel, parallel lines continue, literally, forever without touching. Infinite Solutions: Where they have the same slope and y-intercept.
