The purpose of this study was to analyze students' mathematical literacy ability in solving problems related to the material of a two-variable system of linear equations. This type of research is descriptive qualitative research. The results of this study are in the form of a description of indicators of mathematical literacy ability, namely: (1) identifying facts mathematically, (2) formulating problems mathematically, (3) using mathematical concepts to solve problems, (4) carrying out calculations based on certain procedures, and (5) draw conclusions. The sample in this study were 10 students of MTs Nurul Khairiyah Deli Serdang. Based on the results of the study, it was found that the average score of students' mathematical literacy abilities per indicator in solving linear equations of two variables, namely (1) identifying facts mathematically obtained 22.5%, (2) formulating problems mathematically obtained 90%, (3) using mathematical concepts to solve problems obtained 93.75%, (4) carrying out calculations based on certain procedures 92.5%, and (5) drawing conclusions obtained 83.75%.
