In this section, we will review linear equations in two variables. These equations are of the form: ax + by = c. A solution to a linear equation
in two variables is generally given as an ordered pair (x,y). A solution can be found by picking a number for x and solving for the unknown y value.
We could also reverse this process and choose a value for y and solve for the unknown x value. For a given linear equation in two variables, there
are an infinite number of solutions or ordered pairs. To deal with this, we generally sketch a graph using the Cartesian coordinate plane, which is
also called the rectangular coordinate plane. The graph gives us a visual representation of all solutions of the equation. We graph an equation by
finding three ordered pair solutions and plotting the ordered pairs. We then sketch a line through the ordered pairs and place arrows at each end.
The arrows indicate that the line continues forever in each direction.
