Solving Simultaneous Equations: Other Methods?

In summary, Daniel was asking if there were other methods for solving simultaneous equations besides matrix, determinant, elimination, substitution, and graphical methods. He was curious if those were enough and was asking for clarification on what methods were included in the list.

what do u mean by "aren't those enough"?

He meant it as a question- answer the question!

And what he is really asking is "why are you asking?"

It's not clear to me what methods are included or not included in your list ("matrix" is rather vague for one thing- in a certain sense every linear system is a matrix problem and every method for solving a linear system is a matrix method!).
 

1. What are simultaneous equations?

Simultaneous equations are a set of two or more equations that contain two or more unknown variables. The solutions to these equations are the values of the variables that make all equations true at the same time.

2. What are some other methods for solving simultaneous equations?

Other methods for solving simultaneous equations include substitution, elimination, and graphing. These methods involve manipulating the equations in different ways to isolate and solve for the variables.

3. How do I know which method to use?

The method you should use depends on the equations given and your personal preference. Some methods may be easier or more efficient for certain types of equations. It is always a good idea to try different methods to see which one works best for a particular set of equations.

4. Can I use a calculator to solve simultaneous equations?

Yes, many calculators have functions that allow you to input and solve simultaneous equations. However, it is important to understand the steps involved in solving the equations by hand in order to use the calculator effectively.

5. Are there any tips for solving simultaneous equations?

One tip for solving simultaneous equations is to start by isolating one variable in one of the equations, then substituting that value into the other equation. This can make the equations easier to work with and can lead to a quicker solution. Also, always double check your solutions by plugging them back into the original equations to make sure they are correct.
