**Solve linear systems by graphing**

** **

** **The **solution set of a system of equations **contains all ordered pairs that satisfy all the equations of the system *at the same time*. An example of a linear system is

x + y = 5

2x – y = 4. Linear system of equations

One way to find the solution set of a linear system of equations is to graph each equation and find the point where the graphs intersect.
