Look at Part 1. What do we call it when two or more equations are set up like this?
A system of equations.
What strategies can you use for solving systems of equations?
Substitution, elimination, and graphing.
Using substitution, what would the first step of solving this system look like?
Finish solving the system. How many solutions are there and what are they?
Two solutions:
How could you find the solutions to this system graphically?
Graph both equations and identify the points of intersection.
Look at Part 2. What does it mean to have these equations defined using
It means that each equation is a function of
Where will each function cross the
Which function will grow at a faster rate? How do you know?
