8th Grade MAT Targeted Standards Domain (EE) Expressions and Equations Cluster: Analyze and solve linear equations and pairs of simultaneous linear equations

Analyze and solve pairs of simultaneous linear equations.

MAT-08.EE.08b Solve systems of two linear equations in two variables algebraically, and estimate solutions by graphing the equations. Solve simple cases by inspection.

For example, 3x + 2y = 5 and 3x + 2y = 6 have no solution because 3x + 2y cannot simultaneously be 5 and 6.
