Check my answer! Your favorite math magazine has recently published an article on their website about whether solving systems of non-linear equations is easier by graphing or algebraically. You decide to write an email to the editor of the math magazine defending your opinion. Your email must be two to four paragraphs in length. You must express your opinion on which method is easiest. Provide at least three pieces of supporting evidence. Provide an additional graph of a system of non-linear equations that supports your viewpoint.

    I personally believe that graphing is an easier method to solve non-linear equations easier. As opposed to solving linear equations, the algebraic method is easier to use. Graphs are plottable, it makes visual representations. Basically, it’s practical when it comes to non-linear equations. The information can easily be analysed once drawn. There can be an infinite amount of solutions, or no solutions at all. Algebraically solving a non-linear equation would only give you numbers, not representations of them. When there are incorrect numbers plugged in the equation, it can be easily fixed because of the visual provided. Linear equations are easy to solve algebraically because they only represent a straight line. As stated before, you can find solutions to a system of non-linear equations easier through a graph. The solution to non-linear equation (x-9)3and linear equation (3x - 27) is clearly shown as (9, 0). Other solutions are also (10.75, 5.2) and (7.27, -5.2). Solving for decimals would prove that the algebraic method is quite tedious as opposed to graphing. https://www.desmos.com/screenshot/ekdbiczser

    sounds good. You have "easier" twice in the first sentence, you should add "where" after the comma in the second sentence, and change "it" to "they" in the third sentence.
