Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Easiest way to do this is to plug in the point of intersection and if both equations are true, then it's the correct answer. For instance, let's check 2. \[2x  y = 1\]\[2(1)  (1) = 1\]\[2 + 1 = 1\]\[3 ≠ 1\]THerefore, it isn't 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also, if the point of intersection is the same in two choices, then you have to make sure the lines make sense.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And yes, 2 is incorrect since the solution set is also the point of intersection when graphed...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright. I explained the process above... Let's take a look at choice 3... 2x  y = 1 Plus in the point of intersection, (1, 1) 2(1)  (1) = 1 2  1 = 1 3 ≠ 1 Do you see how the final equations ends up false since 3 does NOT equal 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok. and choice 1, (1, 1) 2(1)(1)=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1my idea would be to use a knowledge of the equations to match the graph in this manner x + y = 2 notice this is pretty easy to turn to y = mx+b format y = x2 we need to find an option that has a line going thru y=2 and a downill slope of 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Um... \[2(1)  (1) = 1\]\[2 + 1 = 1\]\[1 = 1\]You should always check both equations by the way for the future, but it is indeed choice 1 :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11 and 3 fit the thru 2 part; and 3 is too steep for comfort
