However, I would recommend using a TI graphing calculator’s capabilities for this.  Not only is the calculator very capable, many students should have access to one (hopefully through school).
Exercise
Solve y=3x+1 and y=-x+5 by graphing the equations and finding out where they intersect.
Problem
The Smith family is trying to decide between installing cable or satellite.  Cable has a one-time installation charge of $45 and then $34 charge per month.  Satellite has a $185 charge for installation and then ongoing costs of $20 per month.  What would you advise they do?
