Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to solve systems of equations by graphing using different methods like X and Y intercepts and slope intercepts. We see how to identify inconsistent and dependent systems and how to determine the solution in each case. It's crucial to be accurate while graphing to avoid errors while finding solutions, and it's always recommended to check the order pair solution in each of the original equations before we proceed.

Lesson Description:

Part 4 of Solving Linear Systems of Equations with 2 variables. Includes examples using the Graphing Method, including special cases.

    This lesson does 3 example problems of solving systems of equations. Each example problem is a different case - one system has one solution, one has no solution, and one has infinitely many solutions. This is a perfect video to see the different possible cases.
