Systems of equations

A "system of equations" is when we're dealing with more than one equation at the same time. These tutorials show you how to set up and solve systems of equations.

Whether in the real world or a cliche fantasy one, systems of equations are key to solving super-important issues like "the make-up of change in a troll's pocket". This tutorial shows you how to solve systems of equations graphically.

We already know that we can represent the set of all x-y pairs that satisfy a linear equation as a line. If there is a point where two of these lines intersect, then the x-y pair corresponding to that point must satisfy both equations. Common Core Standards: 8.EE.C.8, 8.EE.C.8a

This tutorial is focused on solving systems through substitution. It has more examples than you can shake a dog at. As always, pause the video and try to solve before Sal does. Once you get a hang for things, feel free to skip the rest of the videos and try the exercises. The best way to learn, after all, is to do rather than just listen!
