1. Describe the three types of solutions systems of equations have when graphed.

Answer: __________________________________________________________

No solution equations or linear equations e.g. 4x+5y=30

These systems of linear equations can have no solution, many solutions or a unique solution.

Unique solution equation e.g. (4,8,10) or x=4.y=8 ,z=10

It is consistent and the number of variables is equal to the number of non-zero rows.

Infinitely many solution-It is consistent and the number of variables is more than the number Of non-zero rows

e.g. (2x-y+3z,2x+3y-z,2z)

2. The sum of two numbers is 30 and their difference is 2. Find the two numbers by writing and solving a system of equations.

Calculations:

Answer: _______________

Let the 2 numbers be x and y

X+Y=30

X-Y=2

Therefore by substitution

2X=32

X=16

Y=14

3. Two apples and three pears cost $3.45. Three apples and five pears cost $5.55. Find the cost of each type of fruit.

Calculations:

Answer: _______________...
