average rate of change = change in y / change in x
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you're going from x=3 to x=5 so, chang ein x = 53 = 2

do u knw how to find change in y, from the given table ?
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
But what about the 1 ?
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
And no , all of this is confusing to me :(
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
its okay to get confuse when u start... did u get how we got the change in x ?
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes, we subtracted them? :o
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes, now look at table. and tell me wats the y value, when x = 5 and when x = 3
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
When x=5 , the y value is 2 . When x=3 , the y value is 4
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
excellent ! so change in y = 24 = 6
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
average rate of change = change in y / change in x = 6/2 = 3
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
see if that makes sense
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
That does makes sense ! :D

Thank you so much, I have a few more questions? Would you be willing to help?

I will attach it as a picture so it will be easier :)

find m, the rate of change of first
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
those are the given points
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
(1, 3) and (1 , 7) x1 y1 x2 y2
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
rate of change , m = change in y / change in x = y2y1 / x2x1
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
= 73 / 11 = 4/2 =2 so, m = 2
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Right :) I'm working it out on paper with you :P
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now, use this : equation of line in slope, point form is, y  y1 = m(xx1) plugin values :)
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
That would be y  3 = 2 (x  (1)) ?
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
not yet, thats one equation. we could have used the second point aswell... let me do it for you :)
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Oh , okay :) Thank you !
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
slope m = 2, second point (1 , 7) so m = 2, x1 = 1, y1=7 yy1 = m(xx1) plugin values now
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
thats the second equation. now see which one exists in the given options , and tick that one...
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You helped me understand this ! Thank you :D
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes ! takes time to master these... i see you're already getting good at these :)

I have 3 more questions left and 2 are easy , once I answer those may you help me with the very last question ?? Pleasee :p

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
just holler when u r done wid the two prblms... ;)

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Okay here's the last question :) Jack and Jill had 3 pails of water. Each trip up the hill, Jack and Jill obtained 1 more bucket of water. Which of the graphs below represents Jack and Jill's number of pails over time?
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
check ur 3rd & 4th graphs. they are same !
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
That's how it is on my quiz :( It's probably an error ... Is there anyway to do this and figure out the answer and see if it's on one of the graphs ? If not , I don't think my teacher will deduct points for the question being incorrect lol
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ohk, but wat wud u pick whe u have two exact same graphs ?
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Ugh I'm just going to chose an answer and tell my teacher there was an error with the questions . Thank you though :)
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
good :) here is how we solve it : since to start with, they have 3 pails of water, that means, the line must cit the y axis at 3
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
since the line is cutting yaxis at 3 only in 3rd & 4th graphs, one of them must be ur answer
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and since, both graphs are exact same, u toss a coin and pick one
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Haha okay :) Thank you so much for your help :)

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
np :) goodluck wid ur assignment :)

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
WAITTT ! This one ?? :o

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ha, take first equation, and solve x
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
first equaiton : 2x+4 = 3x11
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes, give me a minute :)

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I need help solving the last one ...
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
second one is 16 \(\checkmark \)
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but first one is not 3
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
It's not ? :( What's the first one ?
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
2x+4 = 3x11 subtract 2x both sides 4 = x  11 add 11 both sides 15 = x
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Ohhhhh ! I know what I did wrong ! I added 3x and 2x by mistake ! haha
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
:) i thought so... third equation : \(\large \frac{2x+1}{3} = \frac{x+6}{2}\)
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
How would I start ? :( I'm no good in cross multiplying ..
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\(\large \frac{2x+1}{3} = \frac{x+6}{2}\) \(\large 2(2x+1) = 3(x+6)\)
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Omg that makes sense . ! Okay I understand now !
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\(\large \frac{2x+1}{3} = \frac{x+6}{2}\) \(\large 2(2x+1) = 3(x+6)\) \(\large 4x+2 = 3x+18\) solve x
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
4x + 2 = 3x + 18 ? Then solve ?
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\(\large \frac{2x+1}{3} = \frac{x+6}{2}\) \(\large 2(2x+1) = 3(x+6)\) \(\large 4x+2 = 3x+18\) subtract 3x both sides \(\large x+2 = 18\)
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Oh sorry I subtracted 4x by mistake !
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\(\large \frac{2x+1}{3} = \frac{x+6}{2}\) \(\large 2(2x+1) = 3(x+6)\) \(\large 4x+2 = 3x+18\) subtract 3x both sides \(\large x+2 = 18\) subtract 2 both sides \(\large x = 16\)

So equations 1 and 3 have the same solution !
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes ! so we got, first one, x = 15 second one, x = 16 third one, x = 16
 7 months ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
careful madam, equations 2 and 3 have the same solution
 7 months ago

LaynaMaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU !! :) & yes I got confused haha but now i get it :)
