# How do you write a system of linear equations in two variables?

Sep 9, 2014

System of equations are written in the following format:

$2 x + 4 y = 16$
$6 x - 3 y = 18$

x and y for variables are just examples. The goal is to line these up so that matching variables from each linear equation are under each other.

There are 3 ways to solve this:

1) Substitution Method
2) Elimination Method
3) Cramers Rule using Matrices.
