How To Solve A System By Graphing Example 1

Here is an example of how to solve a system using the graphing method.  Remember to read the lesson on this topic.

Basic steps to follow:

1. First understand that the solution to a system is the (x, y) point where the lines that make up the system intersect
2. Graph both lines as accurately as possible on graph paper
3. Determine the point (x, y) where the two lines intersect- this will be the solution
















Important habits to master math:

1. write out all steps
2. be very neat
3. use pencil not pen
4. review your work as your go
5. make sure you know the basics like fractions, positive and negative numbers and order of operations
