This is a free lesson from our course in Algebra II
This lesson explains the concept of solving systems of linear equations. A system of equations is a collection
of two or more equations with the same set of unknowns. In solving a system of equations,
you'll find values for each of the unknowns that will satisfy every equation in
the system. There are two basic methods you can use to solve systems of linear equations:
• substitution
• equating the coefficients (More text below video...)
(Continued from above)
To solve any system of equations, the number of
unknowns must be equal to the number of equations available. Explaination is provided with the
help of some examples presented with video, in instructor's voice and own handwriting to
how to solve the system of equations by: substitution and equating the coefficients
in equations. Substitution is a method where we solve for one variable in terms
of other and substitute that value in the other equation. In equating coefficients
of equations; the equations are modified such that for one variable, its coefficients
in the two equations match up, being either the same or negatives of one another.
E.g. the system of equations 3x + 2y = 11 and 2x + 3y
= 4, when solved by either of the methods, yields y = 2 and x
= 5.
Winpossible's online math courses and tutorials have gained rapidly popularity since
their launch in 2008. Over 100,000 students have benefited from Winpossible's courses...
these courses in conjunction with free unlimited homework help serve as a very effective
mathtutor for our students.

All of the Winpossible math tutorials have been designed by topnotch instructors
and offer a comprehensive and rigorous math review of that topic.

We guarantee that any student who studies with Winpossible, will get a firm grasp
of the associated problemsolving techniques. Each course has our instructors providing
stepbystep solutions to a wide variety of problems, completely demystifying the
problemsolving process!

Winpossible courses have been used by students for help with homework and by homeschoolers.

Several teachers use Winpossible courses at schools as a supplement for inclass
instruction. They also use our course structure to develop course worksheets.
