Topic 4:

SIMULTANEOUS EQUATION

Notes
Methods of solving :
(a) Starting from the LINEAR equation, express y in terms of x (or x in terms of y).

(b) Substitute y (or x) into the second equation (which is non-linear) to obtain a quadratic equation in
the form ax2 + bx + c = 0.

b b 2 4ac
(c) Solve the quadratic equation by factorisation or by using the FORMULA
