Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I personally believe that graphing is an easier method to solve nonlinear 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 nonlinear 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 nonlinear 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 nonlinear equations easier through a graph. The solution to nonlinear equation (x9)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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sounds 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.
