Solving Systems by Elimination/Linear Combination

In this lesson I will teach you the elimination/ combination method to solve a system.  The method gets it’s name because you will take steps to “eliminate” one variable in the equation to solve the system.  Like many things in math the name sounds more complex than the actual concept- so as long as you follow the steps I teach you will be fine.  The elimination/ combination method and the substitution method are the two main system methods you need to master at the pre-algebra / algebra 1 level.  It’s important that you practice as much as you can as you need a wide variety of problems to really master the skill.
