Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Why don't you just plug the points into the equations and see which point makes both sentences true?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So like just 3(1)+5 and 2(7)+5? And so on?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I still don't understand this problem. How do I know what I am looking for?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well we have just shown that the first point is not the right one. So now plug in the second one and see if it makes the sentence true.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What are the equations supposed to equal though?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The equation says y = 3x+5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So when you replace y with 7 and x with 1 it is supposed to make a true sentence like 7 = 7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know that but what is the number it is supposed to equal? :/ Urg :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Whatever number y is in that ordered pair.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You would want to keep doing what Mertzj told you to do until you end up with the same number on both sides of the = . That means that that data point you used is correct. In the instance given 7 and 2 do not equal. That's why it was wrong.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1See. It is supposed to equal 0. So plug in 5 for x and see if you get 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So that point isn't the one either. move on to the third choice.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My answer is C. (2, 1) because in both equations they equal the same.
