Solving Linear Equations, Systems of Equations, and Functions.
Evening.

I am having trouble with how to solve linear equations and functions, as well as how to do systems of equations(as listed in the title). I can't really seem to figure out what I am supposed to be doing, I have a test tomorrow! I've been searching everywhere for a source of good information regarding ways to do these (linear equations, functions, system of equations).

Thank you.

The easiest way would be to learn the material. Any chance we can try a problem and figure that out?

A practice problem I found was y = 3/2x + 1
y = x + 6

You're supposed to graph them to get the answer or something. I am confused. (I should also say that I am not very good at math)

So graph the two lines. The point where they intersect is the solution to the system of equations.

There's my predicament; I am not very sure on how to figure out where to plot the two equations.

On graph paper would be a good idea...
