because the two angles reflect eachother

a linear equation can be expressed in the form:\[y=mx+c\]which you have correctly drawn as a straight line graph

explain more please . thanks
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
now think of two linear equations - these would represent, say:\[y=m_1x+c_1\]and:\[y=m_2x+c_2\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
now, if these two lines intersect, then, at the point of intersection, the y-values of both must be equal - agreed?
anonymous
  • anonymous
agreed .
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
therefore, we can say:\[m_1x+c_1=m_2x+c_2\]at the point of intersection
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
which is the same as saying:\[y=y\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
because y=y thats grate . amazing . tell if we have quadratic equations |dw:1346967366273:dw|
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
same applies for quads - except this time you will get two solutions for x instead of one that you got for the linear case

|dw:1346967476493:dw|
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
lets say
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
and each of these, in theory could give you two different y values
anonymous
  • anonymous
y1=x^2 +mx + c and y2=x^2 +mx + c
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
quads are usually written as:\[y=a_1x^2+b_1x+c_1\]and:\[y=a_2x^2+b_2x+c_2\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
so at the points of intersection we will have:\[a_1x^2+b_1x+c_1=a_2x^2+b_2x+c_2\]
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
which leads to a quadratic equation in x - solve to get the two values for x where these curves intersect
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
in general, we could have two curves defined by:\[y=f(x)\]and:\[y=g(x)\] |dw:1346967756823:dw|
asnaseer

|dw:1346967787868:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
ya
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
and, at each point of intersection, the y and x values on each curve are equal
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
I hope I have explained it well enough for you - let me know if you require any more explanation
anonymous
  • anonymous
have outdone yourself
anonymous
  • anonymous
many thanks.
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
thx - and you are welcome my friend! :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
what is the highest think your done in maths??
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
think == thing?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ya sorry
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
:) I have studied for a PhD in Aeronautical Engineering. but that was many years ago. I now teach maths as a hobby because I still enjoy it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
WOW, thats great. can send you some of my question from time to time?
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
I'm not sure what you mean by "send", but if you mean message me now and then if no one else is helping you - then yes, by all means do - I'll be glad to help out when I can.
anonymous
  • anonymous
by that i meant , the message on the top left corner. thanks
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
ok - thats fine.
anonymous
  • anonymous
am going to do a lot of calculus. nice one
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
but bear in mind that I may not always respond immediately because I also moderate this site so please don't think I'm ignoring you in those cases. :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
thanks. I will be patient . :)
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
gr8! speak to you later then...
