So, again, now we have three equations and three unknowns (variables).

We’ll learn later how to put these in our calculator to easily solve using matrices (see the Matrices and Solving Systems with Matrices section), but for now we need to first use two of the equations to eliminate one of the variables, and then use two other equations to eliminate the same variable: Now this gets more difficult to solve, but remember that in “real life”, there are computers to do all this work!

The easiest way for the second equation would be the intercept method; when we put for the “\(d\)” intercept.

We can do this for the first equation too, or just solve for “\(d\)”.

Remember that when you graph a line, you see all the different coordinates (or \(x/y\) combinations) that make the equation work.

In systems, you have to make both equations work, so the intersection of the two lines shows the point that fits both equations (assuming the lines do in fact intersect; we’ll talk about that later).

This will help us decide what variables (unknowns) to use.

What we want to know is how many pairs of jeans we want to buy (let’s say “\(j\)”) and how many dresses we want to buy (let’s say “\(d\)”).

Now let’s see why we can add, subtract, or multiply both sides of equations by the same numbers – let’s use real numbers as shown below.

Remember these are because of the Additive Property of Equality, Subtraction Property of Equality, Multiplicative Property of Equality, and Division Property of Equality: \(\displaystyle \begin\color\\\,\left( \right)\left( \right)=\left( \right)6\text\\,\,\,\,-25j-25d\,=-150\,\\,\,\,\,\,\underline\text\\,\,\,0j 25d=\,50\\25d\,=\,50\d=2\\d j\,\,=\,\,6\\,2 j=6\j=4\end\). \(\displaystyle \begin\color\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\text-3\\color\text\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\text5\end\) \(\displaystyle \begin-6x-15y=3\,\\,\underline\text\\,29x\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,=58\\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,x=2\\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\2(2) 5y=-1\\,\,\,\,\,\,4 5y=-1\\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,5y=-5\\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,y=-1\end\) ). In the example above, we found one unique solution to the set of equations.
