How do you write a system of linear equations in two variables? Explain this in words and by using mathematical notation in an equation.

• math -

You need to have two ways the variables are related. Take a look at some of the coin problems, mixture problems, tickets sold problems, etc. Do a search in the box at the top right and I'm sure you will see how they are done.

For example, if you have 7 coins (dimes and quarters) which add up to \$1.15, then

d+q = 7
10d+25q = 115
