System of Equations:

Plot both equations on a graph.

The values of pp and qq that solve these two equations simultaneously can be seen on the graph as

A. the inverse of the slopes of the two lines

B. the slopes of the two lines

C. the coordinates at which the two lines intersect

D. the value of the intercepts of the two lines 


Expert Answer

Step 1

The first equation is:

p = 6 - 2q

The second equation is:

p = 2 + q

Plotting both equations on graph:
