Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hahaha. ok first draw a cartesian plane

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you know what that is? yes? ok then plot the two points on the plane

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0have you done that? then draw a line between the two points on the graph

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so now you have to draw the line so that it crosses the x and y axis

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good so now do you know what rise / run is?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so umm, what are the points when you extend the line to the x and y axis?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good. ok so um,.. hold on let me do this in my head for a sec ok? so um,... while you wait tell me a bit about urself.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In my help page it says to find the slope first

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes you have to find the slope first

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to find the slope you have to do rise over run

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I come up with 5/6 is that right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hold on i'm a bit slow

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry about that i'm just learning it myself

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it willl take a while. sorry

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry to interrupt.... the slope is 5/6

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya i think so. sorry i'm not very good, i'm trying my best. ok um. have you heard of y2y2/x2x1= ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea that is the same formula I used but my answer came up with a negative 5/6

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0two negatives make a positive

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok then onto the problem then how do I work this in

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok well you work out what 5/6 is and that's .833

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so the answer is y=0.833x2.336

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No they gave the answer as 5/6x7/3

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use the pointslope form.. yy1 = m (xx1) take one given point and put in the x and y coordinates y + 4 =5/6 (x+2) isolate y: y = 5/6 (x + 2)  4 expand and collect like terms: y = (5/6) x +5/3  4 y = (5/6) x  7/3

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok well I already got that one wrong so now I have a new one (1,8) and (7,6)

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer is as you posted above?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0? you want the equation of the line right? hang on...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How about this one (10,8);7x5y=2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what are we looking for?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line. Express your answer as ymx+b

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry I wrote that wrong it is (4,8);x7y=5. I sent you my example question sorry.

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry it is x+7y not x7y

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I really do not understand how you solve these ones but thanks. Can you help me with a couple more or is that not ok?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, what does it mean for two lines to be parallel?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would like to have help with another question

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's fine, but I was going to explain how to go about finding the answer to this one since you didn't actually learn anything from Applekiwi's response.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you'd like to work on another problem, that's fine too.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would like both help with solving the problem and explaining

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You want a parallel line that intersects (2,7)?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line. Express your answer as ymx+b

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry yes i forgot the other )

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, so what does it mean for two lines to be parallel?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They extend in the same direction

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Equidistant at all points, and never converging or diverging

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Those are both good definitions. Let me give you a third. The reason that they are equidistant at all points is because they both have the same slope right?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you agree that makes sense?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what is the slope of your original line?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that equals y, but what is the slope?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know. How do I find the slope?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, the slope intercept form of a line is y=mx + b where m is the slope, and b is the intercept. is that the form you have it in?
