Occasionally, we need to find a point where two linear equations are both satisfied.

There are several approaches one can take. Which one you select may depend on how much easier finding a solution with that method is over other methods.

While any of the techniques is allowed for any problem, it is wise to reduce the amount of work. Selecting the most cumbersome technique can allow more careless errors to occur. Which technique is the more cumbersome is often a matter of the numbers in a particular problem.

Another reason for learning all of the techniques is to develop the skills necessary for solving nonlinear equations. This happens in College Algebra. In nonlinear system of equation problems often there is a technique that works that must be selected. So, always prepare for what is coming.

WriterArtist on 05/03/2021Examples reduce the complications. You have taken good initiative to explain systems of equations. If you take online courses, probably the students can benefit more from the interactive sessions.

blackspanielgallery on 02/12/2021I would think it should be part of any algebra course, so whatever level one is at should include systems of equations.

DerdriuMarriner on 02/12/2021blackspanielgallery, Thank you for the practical information and the product line.

What is the earliest level at which equation systems are introduced?
