No it doesn't matter.. just made up

Well a positive slope is any number bigger than 1.

Sooo what can I do for my linear equation?

blank blank blank +1?

Does it need to have a y-intercept?

It doesn't matter.
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Okay, so it just needs to be something like y=mx+b
anonymous
  • anonymous
...soo.. ok.
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Just make it y=5x+1
anonymous
  • anonymous
That's one?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yup, has a positive slope and everything

So the next question is: If the linear equation of the meteor’s path is known, describe to the captain how to solve where your equation from question 1 and the meteor’s path will cross. Explain any possible methods used in discovering a solution.

So does that mean I need to graph it and find the slope?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
You could set them equal to each other and solve for x, x will be the time they will meet
anonymous
  • anonymous
set what equal to each other?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
The equations
