Elimination in mathematics is used to find the solution set of a system of equalities. This video tutorial shows how to use elimination to find the solution set of a given equation and offers several examples to illustrate the process. Before applying this method, the equation must be in the form “Ax +By=C.” When graphing a set of mathematical equations that intersect, the answer to the elimination is the point on the graph where the two lines cross.
