Now let’s take the same two equations as last time, but view them in a slightly different way. Call this the **column view** of the system.

Now let’s take the same two equations as last time, but view them in a slightly different way. Call this the **column view** of the system.

Let’s look at a system of two equations in two unknowns. We have encountered this topic many times in earlier years, and we have a number of ways to ‘solve’ the system.

Before we go on, let’s solve this system of equations in two different ways that we already know about.
