Simultaneous Equations|Revision (Linear & Non-Linear)

GCSE/Simple Overview:

Simultaneous equations have two unknowns. In order to solve these two equations, you need to find the values of these unknowns therefore making the equation true.

Example of a Simple Linear Simultaneous Equation:

3x + y = 20

X + 4y = 14

GCSE/A-Level:

A pair of simultaneous equations can involve a x2 or y 2 term. This can be solved using substitution

y = x2 – 2x – 7

x – y = -3

A-Level:

Solving Non-Linear Simultaneous Equations: (Substitution is key)

X – 2y = 1

X2 + y2 = 13
