Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Brizy, here's something else you can also try. Go to http://fooplot.com. It will graph the equations for you and you can see what quadrants they are in. You do have to solve for y first. So your first equation in A would be: 3x + 2y = 15 2y = 3x  15 y = (3/2)x  (15/2) Then you'd enter everything right of the "=" sign on that website. Hope that helps.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I find it easiest to graph equations when they're in y = mx + b (slopeintercept) form. So first things first, we try to solve the equations for y: \[\begin{align} 3x + 2y &= 15\\ 2y &= 3x  15\\ y &= \frac{3x  15}{2} = \frac{3}{2}x  \frac{15}{2} \end{align}\] And the other one: \[\begin{align} x  4y &= 20\\ 4y &= 20  x\\ y &= \frac{20  x}{4} = \frac{20}{4}  \frac{1}{4}x\\ y &= 5  \frac{1}{4}x = \frac{1}{4}x  5 \end{align}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, we now have: y = 3/2 x  15/2 y = 1/4x  5 The first thing to notice is that both of these have a negative slope. Do you know what a negative slope means on a graph?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't get how you did the equations but yeah a negative slope goes down left to right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Whoops. Sorry then, let's go back to that :) Let's start with 3x + 2y = 15. We're trying to solve for y. That means we need y alone. Remember that an equation doesn't change if we subtract the same thing from both sides. So first things first, we move the 3x to the right: 3x + 2y = 15 3x  3x + 2y = 15  3x Subtract 3x from both sides, 3x  3x is 0: 0 + 2y = 15  3x 2y = 15  3x (We leave off the 0.) Then we need to get rid of the 2. Dividing the same thing from both sides also leaves the equation unchanged, so we'll divide by 2: y = (15  3x) / 2 y = 15/2  3/2 x Does that make more sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah. So the points are 7.5 and 1.5?

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Close! :) This means that the line is, like we said, going top left to bottom right. It means for every 3 units down that it goes, it goes two units to the right. And it means that it meets the y axis at 7.5. A quick, semiaccurate drawing: dw:1329863330467:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What did I get wrong?

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you can see here that that line is in quadrants II, III, and IV: dw:1329863470553:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01.5 isn't a point, it's the slope, that's all.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, it's in the third Quadrant?

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, that's what I'm not 100% clear on in the question. Obviously this line goes through three quadrants. Is the question asking which quadrant both lines are in or..?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well does it mean what quadrant the slope is in?

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry > slope isn't really in a quadrant. It just tells you how the line moves from one position to another (i.e., what angle it's at).

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It probably means what quadrant the two lines meet in, so let's look at the other line.

shadowfiend
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y = 1/4x  5 So we have a slope of 1/4, meaning for every one unit we go down, we move to the right 4 units. And 5 is the yintercept, which means the line meets the y axis at 5. Another rough drawing: dw:1329864223848:dw

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If we put the two together: dw:1329864317169:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can see there that they do in fact intersect in quadrant III.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So for A it's Quadrant III?

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would assume so. Again, the question isn't *super* clear, but I think that's what it's asking for.
