Using the Combination Method

(Addition Method)

Now that you've studied the Combination Method examples for solving systems of equations, I know you are anxious to practice a few on your own. Ready? Try these two practice problems. Review the examples if you need help, and check your answers using the answer key below. Good luck, I know you can do it.

Quickly review the steps and get started.

- Arrange the equations with like terms in columns.
- Analyze the coefficients of x or y. Multiply one or both equations by an appropriate number to obtain new coefficients that are
**opposites** - Add the equations and solve for the remaining variable.
- Substitute the value into either equation and solve.
- Check the solution.

1. 2x +3y = 5

-x +2y = 8

2. 2x - 3y = 17

3x +2y = 6

With the more difficult concepts in Algebra, the only way to really feel comfortable with the skill, is to practice, practice, practice! The Algebra Class E-courses allow you to not only practice, but it also allows you to check every step of your solution. There's never any question as to where you may have made a mistake!
