Solving Systems by Addition

Unit 6: Systems of Linear Equations
Lesson 5 of 13

Objective: SWBAT solve systems in which adding on both sides, leads to an equation in one variable.

Big Idea: Knowing that the sum of the left and right sides of two different equations are equal, is key to solving certain systems, and later, many real world problems.
