|dw:1377735213897:dw| It says find the coordinates of point b and d, a and d, and c and e
Ehhhh, is the original question in picture form, Hannah?
Sorry for the horrible drawing :/
Haha ok, that's ok. Heck, Im still drawing stick figures even now so that's cool. That's why I stick to math. So lets see here...you have two points. \(A(x_1,y_1)\) and \(B(x_2,y_2)\) RIght?...
Oh wait no...
lol I'm supposed to find the coordinates :)
Oh okay so you have x-values A,B,C,D, and E. Right?
yeah and im supposed to find the coordinates
OOOOH Alright just give me a sec
Alright. So the thing is that in general, you have five points and you know the x-values for all of them. Normally a point is in the form: \(P(x,y)\) So you have five points: Ill name them...A, B, C, D, and E: So you know the "x" part for them: You have \(A(-8,y)\) \(B(-6,y)\) \(C(1,y)\) \(D(3,y)\) \(E(7,y)\) Right?
Now since all of them lie on the x-axis, then they all have the y-co-ordinate of "0"! So you have the five points: \(A(-8,0)\) \(B(-6,0)\) \(C(1,0)\) \(D(3,0)\) \(E(7,0)\) Nice? :-)
Lol Its ok I figured it out now! But thanks for helping anyways :) I really really appreciate it!
And yes that was write!!!
