In this video, learn the elimination method for solving two simultaneous linear equations in a real-world context. In the accompanying classroom activity, students watch the video, solve a pair of simultaneous linear equations, and write a word problem to fit the equations. In order to facilitate introduction to and practice with the elimination method, students work with simple linear equations. To get the most from this lesson, students should be comfortable solving linear equations in one variable, presented as real-world and algebraic problems.
