In this video we'll learn how to use the elimination method to solve a system of linear equations, and we'll learn how to recognize types of solutions. The goal with the elimination method is to combine the equations in a way so that we can solve for one variable at a time. In order to do this, sometimes we'll have to multiply by a constant. When multiplying by a constant, you may have to multiply one, or both of the equations to create a pair of terms that will cancel when added. Well also learn what happens when a system has exactly one solution, no solutions, or an infinite amount of solutions.
*These practice questions are only helpful when you work on them offline on a piece of paper and then use the solution steps function to check your answer.
