if |x-5| >0 , then x-5=3
if |x-5| <0, then -x-(-5)=3;
-x+5=3

- anonymous

since x is a variable, you can't say |x-5| is > or < than 0, so you must consider both cases
(unless the question tells you if it is < or >)

linear function means the graph will be a straight line
so, if you take the same deltax for diferent x's, there should be the same deltay in both cases
I guess it's a bit confuse - sorry I can't explain the right way cause my english is poor...

- anonymous

like if you pick up x1=1, y1=1 & x2=2, y2=-3
for any other deltax = x2-x1 = 1, there should be the same deltay = y2=y1 = -4

- anonymous

i suppose its not ?

- anonymous

it is!
plot the graph and you will see. Every point (x,y) is in an unique line

- anonymous

oooh haha thanks

Tell whether the sequence is arithmetic. If it is, what is the common difference?
–12, –7, –2, 3, . . . (1 point)
yes; 5
yes; 8
yes; 3
no

- anonymous

and you can even write the function, which is y=5-4x

- anonymous

that one is yes; 5 ?

- anonymous

right

- anonymous

For the data in the table, does y vary directly with x? If it does, write an equation for the direct variation.
x y
3 6
6 18
8 24
(1 point)
yes; y = 2x
yes; y = 3x
yes; y = 4x
no; y does not vary directly with x

- anonymous

d?

- anonymous

in this case, any member of the sequence is given by An= -12 + 5n

- anonymous

hahaha, calm down!

- anonymous

haha mybad

- anonymous

well, that's the same as the other

- anonymous

actually, it is yes

The table shows the height of a tree as it grows. What equation in slope-intercept form gives the tree's height at any time?
Time
(months) Height
(inches)
2 14
4 23
6 32
8 41
y = 9x + 2
y = 9/2x + 5
y = 9/2x
y = 5x + 9/2

- anonymous

(by the way, the previous one is d, sorry)

- anonymous

i know, thank you

- anonymous

you need to find the slope
which is deltay/deltax

- anonymous

y=ax+b
a is the slope
once you find it, just put any value for y from the tableand you get b

- anonymous

Write y = –2/5x – 3 in standard form using integers.
2x + 5y = –15
2x + y = –3
2x + 5y = –3
x + y = –15

- anonymous

it is (-2/5)x , right?

- anonymous

yep

- anonymous

just multiply everything by 5

- anonymous

c?

- anonymous

no a ! haha

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

thanks your helping so much

- anonymous

Write the equation of a line that is perpendicular to the given line and that passes through the given point.
y = –1/3x + 5; (4, 3)
y = –3x + 15
y = 3x – 9
y = –4x + 3
y = –1/3x – 11

- anonymous

you're welcome :)

- anonymous

aaaaaa, I forgot the rule

- anonymous

to be perpendicular, the multiplication of the slopes' values must be -1, is it right?

- anonymous

the equation you need to find is y=ax+b
a.(-1/3) = ?
then substitute (4;3)

- anonymous

ah, the slope2 of a perpendicular line is -1/slope1

- anonymous

a1 the slope of a line
a2 the slope of a perpendicular line
then a2= -1/a1
or a1.a2=-1

- anonymous

hmm C?

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

What is the solution of the system?
y = x – 14
y = –4x + 11
(5, –9)
1 over 5 and – (69 over 5)
5 over 3 and – (37 over 3)
– (3 over 5) and – (73 over 5)

- anonymous

subtracting the first by the second, you have 0=5x-25
this gives you x=5

- anonymous

substitue x in any of the equations and you find y

- anonymous

im confused

- anonymous

idk where 0=5x-25 is from :/

- anonymous

y=x-14
y=-4x+11 (minus)
_____________
0=x-(-4x)-14-11

- anonymous

or
since y=y, then x-14=-4x+11

- anonymous

d?

- anonymous

no, it's a, the simplest

- anonymous

ohh lol

- anonymous

haha

Bradley and Ryan are having a contest to see who can collect the most bumper stickers. Bradley started with 23 bumper stickers and plans to add 4 each month. Ryan has 9 bumper stickers and plans to add 6 each month. After how many months will they have the same number of bumper stickers? (1 point)
10 months
2 months
7 months
51 months

- anonymous

a way to solve it is writing the equations of stickers collected by each of them

- anonymous

being m = months, then
Bradley: Stickers=23+4m
Ryan: Stickers=9+6m

- anonymous

it means BRadley has 23 stickers and owns 4more each month
and Ryan has 9 stickers and owns 6 more each month

- anonymous

b.2 months?

- anonymous

it is the same as the previous, and you can just write
y=23+4x
y=9+6x
you want to know x

- anonymous

not b

- anonymous

hmm

- anonymous

in this case, you don't want to know y

- anonymous

either, you could substitute the options in the formulas and see if they give the same number

- anonymous

i dont know :(

- anonymous

Sure you know!
Bradley: [number of stickers]=23+4x
Ryan: [number of stickers]=9+6x

- anonymous

if you call number of stickers as 'y'
then you see that y MUST be the same in both equations

- anonymous

and so the right hand sides of the equations

- anonymous

so 23+4x=9+6x
and you just need to find x

- anonymous

the secret in this question is to transform words in equations, once you done that, you solve matematicaly (?)

- anonymous

7months!

- anonymous

yes! haha

- anonymous

haha thank you thank you

- anonymous

oh well, there's any other problem?
I must go soon :P

- anonymous

k last one How many solutions does the system have?
12y = –3x + 20
y = –1/4x + 5/3 (1 point)
one
two
infinite
none
i think its infinite?

- anonymous

let's see

- anonymous

You are right

- anonymous

but look at the system and you will see one is the same as the other

- anonymous

one equation is the same as the other

- anonymous

so you can't find just one value for (x,y)
any x value gives an right y value

- anonymous

multiply the second by 12, and you will end up with 2 equal equations

- anonymous

oohh so its B?

- anonymous

no, it is infinite, as you said

- anonymous

i see

- anonymous

you have 1 equation and 2 variables

- anonymous

any given value of x will result in a y
or any y will result in a x

- anonymous

all of then right

- anonymous

What is the slope of the line that passes through the pair of points?
(5, 7), (2, 1)
8/7
2
–8/7
1/2

- anonymous

deltay/deltax

- anonymous

i still have to graph some questions but i will let you know

- anonymous

if you are not in a hurry, i can answer as soon as i come back

- anonymous

k im not in a hurry

- anonymous

(7-1)/(2-5) or (1-7)/(5-2)
You just need to use the correspondent positions to x's and y's values

- anonymous

like (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) or (y1-y2)/(x1-x2)
but not (y2-y1)/(x1-x2) or (y1-y2)/(x2-x1)

- anonymous

any other question, message me :)
bye!

- anonymous

thank u
