Introduction to 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.
A troll forces us to use algebra to figure out the make-up of his currency. We end up setting up a system of equations
