**Q) Solve the following system of linear equations graphically: **

**3 x – y + 1 = 0 **

**x + y = 5**

**Ans: **

**Step 1:** To plot the equations, let’s first find out the coordinates of points lying on these lines:

For line: 3 x – y + 1 = 0,, we calculate coordinates of various points:

at X = 0, 3 (0) – y + 1 = 0 ∴ y = 1

at X = 1, 3 (1) – y + 1 = 0 ∴ y = 4

at Y = 0, 3 x – 0 + 1 = 0 ∴ x =

at Y = 2, 3 x – 1 + 1 = 0 ∴ x =

Hence, we get the following table:

Similarly for line: x + y = 5, we calculate coordinates of various points:

at X = 0, (0) + y = 5 ∴ y = 5

at X = 1, (1) + y = 5 ∴ y = 4

at Y = 0, x + 0 = 5 ∴ x = 5

at Y = 1, x + 1 = 5 ∴ x = 4

Hence, we get the following table:

**Step 2**: Now let’s plot both of these lines connecting each of the points:

From the diagram, we can see that the lines intersect each other at point (1, 4)

**Therefore, the solution of the lines is (1, 4).**
