# Algebraic Systems

posted by .

Okay i just wanna know what you think is the easiest between substitution and elimination/combination. I hate elimaination becuase i get confused quicker with this when actually solving it than in substitution, but it's actually easier for me. Still, substitution is what i understand better even though it takes me ten times longer than when i finally get a system through elimination. I wanna know what you think is easier with a lower stress level for people who struggle with math, so that i can try to get that one completly "under my belt". Thanks for your help and opinons.

i always used substitution..cuz like you, i got confused quicker with elimination.and substitution took me a much longer time, but i could be sure of my answer

I ALWAYS use elimation once i understood it. The tricky part is mulitplying the half after the equal sign. So remember to muliply the product!
