This video shows the method to solve a pair of linear equations by plotting their graph. Look for points of intersection of the two graphs which is the solution. Let us solve 5xy=6 and 2x+y=8. Writing the equations of lines in slope intercept form, we get y=5x6 and y=2x+8. Now we plot the two lines. For the slope 5 or 5/1, we go up 5 units and left 1 units from the point of intersection on the y axis. For 2 or 2/1, we go down 2 units and left 1 units from the point of intersection on the y axis. Plotting the graphs, we look at their point of intersection which in this case is (2,4). This finishes our task.
