What is a System of Equations?

1. What is a System of Equations?

So what happens if we want to compare more than one equation? Welcome to a 'system' of equations! Learn what one is, how to solve them and when they come up in real life.

Solving Simultaneous Linear Equations

2. Solving Simultaneous Linear Equations

In this video lesson, you will learn how to solve simultaneous linear equations or a system of linear equations. Learn the steps you need to take to solve any such system using the Gaussian elimination method.

How Do I Use a System of Equations?

3. How Do I Use a System of Equations?

There are a few classic algebra word problems, such as the one about two trains traveling at different speeds. In this lesson, you'll learn how to take a word problem and convert it into the system of equations that will allow you to find the answer using either substitution or elimination.

How to Solve a System of Equations by Substitution

4. How to Solve a System of Equations by Substitution

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can solve a system of equations by using the substitution method. Learn the key to using the substitution method and take a quiz to practice your new skills.

How to Solve a System of Equations by Elimination

5. How to Solve a System of Equations by Elimination

After watching this video lesson, you will have learned how to solve a system of equations by using the elimination method. You will learn what is being eliminated and how to do it so that you end with your solution.

How to Solve a System of Equations by Graphing

6. How to Solve a System of Equations by Graphing

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can solve a system of equations by graphing. Learn when you have a solution and when you don't. Also learn how easy the solution is to spot.

How to Solve a System of Linear Equations in Two Variables

7. How to Solve a System of Linear Equations in Two Variables

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can solve a system of linear equations in two variables by using the substitution method. Learn how easy it is to use on any linear system in two variables.

Solving Problems Involving Systems of Equations

8. Solving Problems Involving Systems of Equations

Did you ever encounter a problem where you seem to have lots of information, but still have a couple of critical numbers missing? In this lesson, we'll practice solving word problems that require us to set up systems of equations.

Solving and Graphing Two-Variable Inequalities

9. Solving and Graphing Two-Variable Inequalities

With an inequality like y < 2x - 3, where do we start? We can look at y = 2x - 3 and graph it. We can use the graph to define all of the possible solutions.

Set Notation, Compound Inequalities, and Systems of Inequalities

10. Set Notation, Compound Inequalities, and Systems of Inequalities

In this lesson, we'll explore the conditions of compound inequalities and learn how to express them using set notation and interval notation. Test you knowledge afterward with a short quiz.
