## Step 1: Elimination method

In the elimination method you either add or subtract the equations to get an equation in one variable. When the coefficients of one variable are opposites you add the equations to eliminate a variable and when the coefficients of one variable are equal you subtract the equations to eliminate a variable.

## Step 2: Solving linear system using the elimination method:

We will do the following question on the basis of solving linear system using the elimination method; ### Want to see more solutions like these?
