    a linear system is simply a set of linear equations.

    Ok, but can you give me an example so i can try?

    here's an easy one: 2x + y = 3 x + y = 1

    2x + y = 3 + x + y = 1 Is this the right first step?

    you can do 3 different things to solve a linear system: 1. graph the equations, and find where they intersect. 2. substitution 3. elimination.

    Im gonna do elimination then substitution

    I cant do elimination on this one

    2x + y = 3 + x + -y = 1-2y 3x=4-2y

    you can; in fact elimination would be the easy way out of this one

    Can i divide the equations?

    if you subtract equation 2 from equation 1: you get x = 2 x + y = 1 next step is to subtract the new equation 1 from equation 2

    you can't really divide the equations

    Give me another one so i can try, i think i see the pattern

    2x + y = 5 x + y = 3

    2x + y = 5 - x + y = 3 = x=2? The y's cancel out right?

    Now i can substitute to get y

    I can cross check this with the other equation

    4 + 1 = 5 2 + 1 = 3
