Linear equations are equations that has one as its highest exponent

example:

1. x + y = 12 2. -6x + y= 6

to solve for x and y you can either use elimination or substitution

in this case we use elimination

so we either eliminate x or y lets eliminate x we first multiply 6 on equation 1 and multiply 1 to equation 2 to cancel out x 6(x + y= 6) 1(-6x + y= 6) it would then be

6x + 6y = 36 + -6x + y = 6

to cancel out x we add both equations

0x + 7y= 42

so Y=6

and to find x substitute the value of x on either of the equations
