Best Answer

Yes you can, if the solution or solutions is/are real.

-- Draw the graphs of both equations on the same coordinate space on the

same piece of graph paper.

-- Any point that's on both graphs, i.e. where they cross, is a solution of the

system of equations.

-- If both equations are linear, then there can't be more than one such point.

Substitution is a way to solve without graphing, and sometimes there are equations that are impossible or very difficult to graph that are easier to just substitute. Mostly though, it is a way to solve if you have no calculator or cannot use one (for a test or worksheet).

I have never seen the term 'symbolic' used in this way. There are 4 methods used to solve a system of linear equations in two variables. Graphing, Substitution, Elimination, and Cramer's Rule.

A graphing calculator is a more advanced calculator that can plot graphs and solve complex equations. Standard calculators do not have these abilities.

A graph can help you understand equations better its a little way of getting used to a a problem. I used a multiplication graph when i was 10 it helped me memorize the problem.

-- Graph each equation individually. -- Examine the graph to find points where the individual graphs intersect. -- The points where the individual graphs intersect are the solutions of the system of equations.
