The choices available: A. (1, 7) B. (5, 0) C. (2, -1) D. (0, 5)
Why don't you just plug the points into the equations and see which point makes both sentences true?
So like just -3(1)+5 and 2(7)+5? And so on?
I will show you an example
Alright, sounds good!
I still don't understand this problem. How do I know what I am looking for?
Well 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.
What are the equations supposed to equal though?
The equation says y = -3x+5
So when you replace y with 7 and x with 1 it is supposed to make a true sentence like 7 = 7
I know that but what is the number it is supposed to equal? :/ Urg :/
Whatever number y is in that ordered pair.
You 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.
See. It is supposed to equal 0. So plug in 5 for x and see if you get 0
-3(5)+5=10 is what I got..
So that point isn't the one either. move on to the third choice.
My answer is C. (2, -1) because in both equations they equal the same.
