1 Solving Linear Systems (Slope-Intercept Form) Answer Key Vocabulary: slope-intercept form, solution, substitution method, system of linear equations Prior Knowledge Questions (Do these BEFORE using the Gizmo.) [Note: The purpose of these questions is to activate prior knowledge and get students thinking. Students who do not already know the answers will benefit from the class discussion.] 1. Joe s favorite basketball team is the Tigers. Joe s favorite basketball team is in first place right now. What can you conclude? The Tigers are in first place. 2. If y = x + 4 and y = 3x + 2, what must be true about x + 4 and 3x + 2? x + 4 = 3x + 2 Why? x + 4 = 3x + 2 because both x + 4 and 3x + 2 are equal to y. Gizmo Warm-up In the Solving Linear Systems (Slope-Intercept Form) Gizmo, you can use graphing or algebra to solve systems of linear equations like y = x + 4 and y = 3x + 2. On the CONTROLS tab, select the top equation. Set m to 1 and b to 4 to graph the equation y = x + 4. Then select the bottom equation. Set m to 3 and b to 2 to graph the equation y = 3x + 2. (To quickly set the value of a slider, type the number into the text box to the right of the slider and press Enter.) 1. Mouseover the purple intersection point. What are the coordinates? (1, 5) 2. In the space to the right, substitute the coordinates of the intersection point (the x-coordinate for x, and the y-coordinate for y) into each equation and simplify. y = x + 4 y = 3x = = 3(1) = 5 5 = 5 Is each equation true? Yes. 3. The solution of an equation contains the value or values that make the equation true. Select Check solution at point. Drag the green point on top of the purple point. What do you notice? The point (1, 5) is a solution of both equations.

2 Activity A: Solving by graphing Get the Gizmo ready: On the CONTROLS tab, be sure Check solution at point is turned on. 1. Consider the system y = 2x + 7 and x 5. (Do not graph the system in the Gizmo yet.) These equations are in slope-intercept form, which is y = mx + b, where m is the slope, and b is the y-intercept. A. Fill in the table to find the y-value of each equation for each given x-value. x y = 2x + 7 x B. Plot the points for y = 2x + 7 on the grid to the right. Draw a line through the points to graph y = 2x + 7. Then plot the points for x 5 and draw a line through the points to graph x 5. C. Graph y = 2x + 7 and x 5 in the Gizmo. Drag the green point to each of the points you plotted on the grid. Do any of these points represent solutions of both equations? No. D. Mouseover the purple intersection point and plot it on the grid. What are the coordinates of the purple intersection point? (2, 3) E. In the space to the right, substitute the coordinates of the intersection point into each equation and simplify. Is each equation true? Yes. y = 2x + 7 x 5 3 = 2(2) = 4(2) 5 3 = 3 3 = 3 Drag the green point to this point to check. F. Which point represents a solution of both equations? (2, 3) G. Do you think there are other (x, y) points that are solutions of this system? No. Why or why not? The lines only have one point in common, the intersection point, so that is the only point whose coordinates make both equations true. (Activity A continued on next page)

3 Activity A (continued from previous page) On the CONTROLS tab, turn off Check solution at point. Consider the system of equations x + 6 and x 8. A. Sketch the graphs of x + 6 and x 8 on the grid to the right. (First graph the y-intercept, b, then use the slope, m, to find another point on the line.) Graph the system in the Gizmo to check. B. How are the two lines related? The two lines have the same slope and different y-intercepts, so they are parallel. C. Do you think this system has any solutions? No. Explain. The lines never intersect and do not have any common points whose coordinates make both equations true. 2. Graph each system of equations by hand. Then use the graph to find the solution. If the system has a solution, substitute the coordinates into each equation and simplify. Show your work in the space below the graphs. Check your answers in the Gizmo. A. y = x + 5 y = 2x 1 Solution: ( 2, 3) B. y = 3x + 2 y = 3x + 4 Solution: No solution. y = x + 5 y = 2x 1 3 = = 2( 2) 1 3 = 3 3 = 3 [No work is necessary. The lines are parallel (same slope, different y-intercepts), so they do not intersect and there is no solution.]

4 Activity B: Solving with substitution Get the Gizmo ready: On the CONTROLS tab, be sure Check solution at point is turned off. 1. Consider the system of equations y = x + 2 and y = 2x + 8. One way to find the solution of this system is to use a graph. Graph the system in the Gizmo. What is the solution of this system? (2, 4) Why? The graphs of y = x + 2 and y = 2x + 8 intersect at (2, 4), so both equations are true when x = 2 and. 2. You can also use an algebraic method called the substitution method to solve the system y = x + 2 and y = 2x + 8. A. If y = x + 2 and y = 2x + 8, what do you know about x + 2 and 2x + 8? x + 2 is equal to 2x + 8 because they are both equal to y. B. Express the relationship between x + 2 and 2x + 8 as a single equation. x + 2 = 2x + 8 You just used substitution, because you substituted x + 2 for y in y = 2x + 8. C. Solve x + 2 = 2x + 8 for x. Show your work in the space to the right. D. In the space to the right, substitute the x-value above into y = x + 2 and simplify. What is the value of y? 4 E. In the space to the right, substitute the x-value into y = 2x + 8 and simplify. What is the solution? (2, 4) x + 2 = 2x + 8 3x = 6 x = 2 y = x + 2 y = y = 2x + 8 y = 2(2) + 8 Select the SOLUTION tab to check your work. F. Does it matter which equation in the system you use to find the y-value? No. Explain. The only pair of values that makes both equations true is x = 2,. You can substitute x = 2 into either equation, and you will get. (Activity B continued on next page)

5 Activity B (continued from previous page) 3. Consider the system of equations y = x + 3 and x + 8. A. Use the substitution method to find the solution of this system. Show your work to the right. x + 3 = 4x + 8 5x = 5 x = 1 y = ( 1) + 3 B. What is the solution of this system? ( 1, 4) Check in the Gizmo. 4. Consider the system of equations y = 3x + 1 and y = 3x 4. A. Use the substitution method to find the solution of this system. Show your work to the right. 3x + 1 = 3x 4 1 = 4 B. Is the last line above true? No. What does that tell you about the solution of this system? This system has no solution. The lines are parallel, so they never intersect. Check your answer in the Gizmo. C. Experiment with more systems in the Gizmo. In general, when does a linear system have no solution? A system has no solution when the graphs of the equations have the same slope and different y-intercepts, and are therefore parallel. 5. Use the substitution method to solve each system of equations. Show your work in the space below each system. Then use the Gizmo to check your answers. A. y = x + 3 y = 2x + 8 Solution: ( 5, 2) x + 3 = 2x + 8 x = 5 x = 5 y = y = 2 B. y = 4x + 1 y = 4x 5 Solution: No solution. 4x + 1 = 4x 5 1 = 5
