# Math 116 - Chapter 5 Study Guide

- Solve the system of equations by the method of substitution. One linear
system, one non-linear system. Look at problems 5.1.15-28, 41-42, 49-50.
- Find the system of linear equations that has the given solution. There
is more than one possible solution. One part has an ordered pair, the other
part
has an ordered triplet. Look at problems 5.2.57-60, 5.3.41-44.
- Use a graphing calculator to approximate all points of intersection
of the graph of the system of equations. One system involving transcendental
functions,
one non-linear system. Look at problems 5.1.37-50.
- Use back substitution to find the solution to the system of equations.
Look at problems 5.3.5-10.
- Find the equation of a parabola passing through three points. The
model y=ax
^{2} + bx + c is given. Write a system of linear equations
that can be
used to find the equation of the parabola, solve the system of equations,
then write
the equation of the parabola. Look at problems 5.3.85-88.
- Sketch the graph of the inequality. Look at problems 5.4.9-20.
- Sketch the graph of the solution of the system of inequalities.
Look at problems 5.4.39-50.
- Solve the system of equations by the method of elimination.
Two parts. Look at problems 5.2.11-20.
- Solve the system of linear equations. Show your work. One
is a three by three system of linear equations, the other
is a two
by
three system
of linear
equations. Look at problems 5.3.13-21, 33-38.

## Notes:

- In #1 and #8, you are instructed to use a specific method to solve the
system of equations. If you are unable to use that method, go ahead and use
a different method to solve it and get some partial credit for the problem.
- Show work on all problems except where otherwise indicated.
- There is a take home exam for this chapter worth 30 points. It is due
the day of the exam.
- There are not many problems on the in-class test, so each one is worth
a lot of points. Make sure you know the material well.
