Chapter 24, Solving Simultaneous Equations comes from the FHSST (Free High School Science Texts) Mathematics textbook. FHSST is a project that aims to provide free science and mathematics textbooks for Grades 10 to 12 science learners. The project was initiated by young South African scientists, and now brings together scientists from around the world who are willing to contribute to the writing of the books.

Below is a complete Table of Contents for this chapter.

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

Use appropriate tools strategically.

Attend to precision.

Understand that solutions to a system of two linear equations in two variables correspond to points of intersection of their graphs, because points of intersection satisfy both equations simultaneously.

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