I don't like the way you teach. you shouldn't be taking shorcuts because is confusing specially for beginners like me. you should be doing all the process.

Graphing Systems of Equations

  • A system of equations is two equations in two variables. A solution consists of values for each unknown that satisfy both equations.

  • A system can have one, infinite, or no solutions.

  • The system is called independent if it has one solution. In this case, the graphs of the two equations intersect at one point.

  • It is called dependent if it has infinitely many solutions. In this case, the graphs are the same line.

  • It is called inconsistent if it has no solution. In this case, the graphs are parallel.

  • You can solve a system by graphing. Always check your solutions to be sure you have read the graph accurately.

  • Use the method of graphing when you are willing to settle for an estimate for the solution.
