Take Note: Solving a system of linear equations by graphing does not always provide exact solutions. Sometimes the lines do not intersect nicely at integer values.
Solving systems algebraically, including using the substitution method, provides precise solutions.

Take Note: Place the following steps for solving a system of linear equations using the substitution method in the correct chronological order.
1. Substitute the value of the second variable into one of the original equations to find the value of the first variable.
2. Check your final solution by substituting it into both of the original equations.
3. Substitute the expression for that variable in the other equation and then solve for the second variable.
4. Isolate a variable in one of the equations.
