Comparing Methods to Solving Systems
Systems of equations can be solved by graphing, substitution, or elimination. However,
there are situations where one method may be more sophisticated than another. Solve
the following systems using the graphing, substitution, or elimination method.
You may only use each method once.
SYSTEM A
Method of Choice: ______ Graphing _____ Substitution _____ Elimination
 x − y = −2

 7 x + 2 y = −5
Solution:
SYSTEM B
Method of Choice: ______ Graphing _____ Substitution _____ Elimination
8 x + 5 y = −13

3 x + 4 y = 10
Solution:
SYSTEM C
Method of Choice: ______ Graphing _____ Substitution _____ Elimination
 4 x − 3 y = 18

2 x + y = 4
