ANYONE ?????? Log the coordinates of the specific points in space to which your spacecraft will travel. Please remember to include the graph of your points and the lines connecting each point along with your work. Launch Area:___(1, 2)___ Point A:__________ Point B:__________ Point C:__________ You must show your work on each question below. Determine the equation of the line, in standard form, that will get your spacecraft from the Launch Area to Point A. Determine the equation of the line, in point-slope form, that will get your spacecraft from Point A to Point B. Determine the equation of the line, in slope-intercept form, that will get your spacecraft from Point B to Point C. In question 2, you selected one of two points (Point A or Point B) to be included in your point-slope equation. Write the point-slope form of that equation again, using the other point’s coordinates. Convert the equations you arrived at in question 2 and question 4 into slope-intercept form. Does the point you select matter when your write a point-slope equation? Explain your reasoning using complete sentences. Reflect back on this scenario and each equation you created. Would any restrictions apply to the domain and range of those equations? Explain your reasoning using complete sentences. Explain, using complete sentences, why it is important to understand any limitations on the domain and range.

    Lol I see that , I just need help with the last 2 questions now . 7. 7. Reflect back on this scenario and each equation you created. Would any restrictions apply to the domain and range of those equations? Explain your reasoning using complete sentences. 8. 8. Explain, using complete sentences, why it is important to understand any limitations on the domain and range.

    I was answering another question. This one is just too long to read through the entire problem and all the replies. But without going thru all of it, the restrictions I can think of is x and y should not be negative.

    Can't be 100% sure if that is what they are expecting unless I read through the whole thing and give it some thought. Maybe the spacecraft shouldn't even be below the launch point.

    y measures the vertical height. Therefore y cannot be negative. Maybe y shouldn't even be below the launch point. Therefore range will be either (0, infinity) or [2, infinity) To find the domain for each equation, set the condition y > 0 and solve for x. The upper bound will be infinity. So the domain for each function will look like: (a, infinity) where you have to find the value of "a" for each equation that will ensure y > 0.
