## What is an example of substitution method?

In the substitution method you solve for one variable, and then substitute that expression into the other equation. The important thing here is that you are always substituting values that are equivalent. For example: Sean is 5 years older than four times his daughter’s age.

## How do you find the substitution method?

To check a system of equations by substitution, you plug your values for x and y into the original equations. If both simplified expressions are true then your answer is correct. Since x=2 and y=−3 worked for both equations I know that (2,−3) is the solution to this system of equations.

**What do we substitute in substitution method?**

A way to solve a linear system algebraically is to use the substitution method. The substitution method functions by substituting the one y-value with the other. We’re going to explain this by using an example. We can substitute y in the second equation with the first equation since y = y.

**How do you solve substitution method?**

Steps for Using the Substitution Method in order to Solve Systems of Equations

- Solve 1 equation for 1 variable. ( Put in y = or x = form)
- Substitute this expression into the other equation and solve for the missing variable.
- Substitute your answer into the first equation and solve.
- Check the solution.

### When should you use the substitution method?

Substitution is best used when one (or both) of the equations is already solved for one of the variables. It also works well if one of the variables has a coefficient of 1.

### What is the substitution property?

Substitution Property: If two geometric objects (segments, angles, triangles, or whatever) are congruent and you have a statement involving one of them, you can pull the switcheroo and replace the one with the other.

**What are three methods?**

The three methods most commonly used to solve systems of equation are substitution, elimination and augmented matrices.

**What is the first step in the substitution method?**

The method of substitution involves three steps:

- Solve one equation for one of the variables.
- Substitute (plug-in) this expression into the other equation and solve.
- Resubstitute the value into the original equation to find the corresponding variable.

## How do you use substitution property?

Substitution Property: If two geometric objects (segments, angles, triangles, or whatever) are congruent and you have a statement involving one of them, you can pull the switcheroo and replace the one with the other. (Note that you will not be able to find the term “switcheroo” in your geometry glossary.)
