Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to solve systems of linear functions through graphing and finding their intersection. By using slope and the y-intercept, the process of graphing two given equations f(x) and g(x) is demonstrated, with their intersection representing the solution to the system of equations. Rise over run is used to find the second point on the line when the slope is 1, while the y-intercept is used to determine where to start graphing. The lesson concludes with the point of intersection between the two lines being identified as the solution to the system.

Lesson Description:

Learn to solve systems of linear functions by graphing and finding their intersection.
