    Systems of Equations KEY

Using B for the cost of a burger, F for the cost of fries, N for the cost of nachos, and S for the cost of a

    soda, write equations for each statement below.

    2 sodas and 3 burgers cost $18. 2S + 3B =18

    5 sodas and 6 burgers cost $39. 5S + 6B = 39

    2 burgers, 2 fries, and 2 sodas cost $18. 2B + 2F + 2S = 18 2 nachos, 3 burgers, 2 fries, and 4 sodas cost $38. 2N + 3B + 2F + 4S = 38

    When used together, these form a system of equations, DEFINITION: which is a set of two or more equations with two or more unknowns (or variables).

    The solution to a system lists the values that can be used DEFINITION: for each variable to make the equations in the system true (or, “check”).


    1) 2343xyz+-=-This is a 3x3 system of equations because it uses

     xz-=43 variables and has 3 equations.

    --+=xyz234 Which of the following would be the solution to this system? C

    A) B) C) x;4,y;1,z2x9.5,y0,z5.5x5,y;3,z1

    2) This is a 2x2 system of equations because it uses 279xy-= 2 variables and has 2 equations. 1yx=-32 Which ordered pair shows the solution to this system? B

    A) (15, 3) B) (8, 1) C) (2, -2)

    Below, circle the correct solution to each equation. How can you determine the solution? Varies
