When Lines Collide

Systems of Equations

Graphing |

Today in class we will solve Systems of Linear Equations by interpreting and creating graphs on Excel! Activities: - Using Microsoft Excel:
- Create a table for the 2 sets of equations below (Hint: The equations need to be in
y = mx+b format) - The x values should range from -5 to +5
- Using the chart wizard, create an (XY) Scatter Plot for each set of systems
- Do the lines from each set intersect? If so, where? How is a point of intersection related to solving systems of linear equations?
- Discussion on project
Systems to Graph: 1) -6x + 3y = -18 3x - 2y = 10 2) 3x - y = 9 2x + 3y = 6 Websites: |
