Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2parallel means you use the same equation just plug in your x and y values to get a new sum

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we can also start by getting rid of the fractions; multiply it all by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do you recall the 5/5 = 1?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then thats all i did to clear the fractions: if theres a 2 on the bottom, what needs to be on top to clear it? a 2 right? 2/2 = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2whatever you do to one thing you do to them all: 3(2)/2x 3(2)y = 27(2)/2 3x 6y = 27 looks better right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do you understand how i cleared the fractions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes that looks better

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now, to get a parallel line; we use the same equation but that 27 is garbage to us; throw it out and get a new number there

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2this point they give you: (3,4) MEANS (x=3,y=4), so wherever you see an x plug in a 3; wherever you see a y plug in a 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.23x 6y = ____ 3(3)  6(4) = ____ 9  24 = 15 ; thats our new number, 15 3x 6y = 15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so now that we have this new equation how do i put it into slope intercept form

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2slope intercept means move it all over to one side except for a y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.23x 6y = 15 ; 3x from both sides 6y = 3x 15 ; multiply it all by 1 6y = 3x +15 ; divide both sides by 6 y = (3/6)x + 15/6 ; reduce fractions y = (1/2)x + 5/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where did u get 1 to multiply it by

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I could have used 128 and it would have changed nothing of the value.... but that seemed excessive lol

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok...so it doesnt matter wat u multiply it by yes

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2since 3=3 can we multiply at all by 4 and get a true result? 3=3 [4] 12 = 12 ??

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then it really doesnt matter "where" I got it from, cause the results are the same regardless right?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I choose it because its useful to me , thats all.

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I wanted to clear out the negatives; and used 1 to keep the number looking the same

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.23x = 14 ; if we multiply it all by 1, we clear out the negative signs 3x = 14 ; now we have a prettier equation to work with and it still has the same value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when i look at this its like another language i cant understand.

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2:) thats cause math had to invent new symbols to express itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2im sure you mean doing it on paper; math is something you do all the time, its just that when we try to define it so that we can discuss it, people get wierded out
