Lesson Goal: Solve a system of two linear equations by graphing.

Definition System of Equations: A system of equations consists of two or more

equations in two or more variables. Definition Solution of a System of Equations: A solution of a system of equations in

two variables is an ordered pair that makes every equation in the system true.

Lesson Goal: Solve a system of two linear equations by substitution.

Process Solving a System of Equations by Substitution

1. Solve one equation for one variable.

2. Substitute this expression into the other equation.

3. Solve the resulting equation.

4. Substitute this value into the expression obtained from step #1.

5. Write the solution set.

Lesson Goal: Solve a word problem using a system of linear equations. 15. A quilt maker sews both large and small quilts. A large quilt requires 8 yards of

fabric while the small quilt requires 3 yards. How many of each size quilt did she

make if she used a total of 90 yards of fabric to make 15 quilts?

16. A store is selling all shoes for \$12 a pair and all slippers for \$8 a pair. If Linda

buys a total of 7 items and spends a total of \$76, how many pairs of shoes and

ounces of paint and each airplane requires 5 ounces of paint. The toy maker has a

gallon can of paint (64 ounces). If he wants to paint 14 toys, how many of each

can he paint?

18. A girl has 15 coins, all nickels and dimes, with a total value of \$1.20. Find the

number of each kind of coin.

sum of the smaller and twice the larger number is 27. Name the numbers.

Lesson Goal: Solve interest problems using a system of linear equations. Using the Language of Investments

Review:

InterestPrincipalRateTimeFormula ;Interest:

Investment problems use a variety of words to describe interest, principal, and rate. Here are some of the words you should associate with each:

Principal always refers to the starting amount of money that is invested, deposited,

or borrowed.

Rate is sometimes referred to as interest, but it is easily identified as the rate

because it is always expressed as a percentage.

Interest is the amount of money that is earned by the investment. It can be

referred to as the yield, dividend, growth, increase, return, earnings, or income. 28. Mr. Kirchner invested \$8000, part earning 8% interest and the rest earning 10%

interest per year. How much did he invest at each rate if his annual yield was \$760?

29. Mrs. Mooney wants to earn at least \$288 in annual dividends. She plans to invest a

certain sum of money at 12% and 3 times as much at 8%. What is the least

amount she can invest at 12% to accomplish this goal?

30. Mrs. Miller deposited \$1400, part at 9% and the rest at 12% annual interest. If

both deposits earn the same annual income, how much has been deposited at each

rate?

31. Miss Dilmer took out two loans to pay for a car. One loan required her to pay 10%

annual interest while the other required her to pay 15% annual interest. Miss

Dilmer borrowed \$1400 more at the lower rate than she did at the higher rate. If

the annual interest on the loan at 10% was \$25 less than the interest on the loan at

15%, how much did she borrow at each rate?
