Solving System of Equations by Substitution




 


Objective: I know how to solve system of linear equations by substitution.


In the Substitution Method, we isolate one of the variables in one of the equations and substitute the results in the other equation. We usually try to choose the equation where the coefficient of a variable is 1 and isolate that variable. This is to avoid dealing with fractions whenever possible.


Look at the lesson on Solving by Substitution if you need to learn how to solve system of equations by substitution.

5y + 4x = 8
y + 5x = 10
Answer: x = , y =


x + y = - 8
x + 3y = - 16
Answer: x = , y =


3y + 5x = - 5
y + 2x = - 1
Answer: x = , y =


y - 5x = 13
y + 2x = 6
Answer: x = , y =


x + y = 13
4x + y = 31
Answer: x = , y =


x + y = 15
5x - y = 39
Answer: x = , y =


3y - x = 22
y + 2x = - 9
Answer: x = , y =


x + 2y = 25
x + 3y = 34
Answer: x = , y =


y + 2x = - 20
- 5x = 35 - 5y
Answer: x = , y =


x - y = 6
- x - 2y = 3
Answer: x = , y =





We hope that the free math worksheets have been helpful. We encourage parents and teachers to select the topics according to the needs of the child. For more difficult questions, the child may be encouraged to work out the problem on a piece of paper before entering the solution. We hope that the kids will also love the fun stuff and puzzles.
