I am going to fail plz help me i am begging i will fan and metal if you help
Two lines, A and B, are represented by the equations given below:
Line A: y = x − 2
Line B: y = 3x + 4
Which of the following shows the solution to the system of equations and explains why?
(−3, −5), because the point does not lie on any axis
(−3, −5), because the point satisfies both equations
(−4, −8), because the point satisfies one of the equations
(−4, −8), because the point lies between the two axes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Didn't I already answer this for you? Line A y = x − 2 Line B: y = 3x + 4 x  2 = 3x + 4 solve for x, then substitute that value for x to get y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well, let's break it down step by step: x  2 = 3x + 4 what happens when you add 2 to each side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont know what you mean Do you mean: 2x2=3x=6?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no, that's multiplication ADD 2 to each side of the equal sign (+2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2x  2 + 2 = 3x + 4 + 2 see how I added + 2 to each side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2great! x  2 + 2 = x, do you agree?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0umm idk it doesnt look right because what did you do with the 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I am only looking at the left side of the equal sign x  2 + 2 = 3x + 4 + 2 JUST look at the left side of the equals sign: x  2 + 2 do you agree that x  2 + 2 = x?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2good! so now we have: x = 3x + 4 + 2, do you agree? we replace the left side with x because x  2 + 2 = x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes okay i am starting to get it a little bit

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok, now just look at the right side: 3x + 4 + 2 do agree that 3x + 4 + 2 = 3x + 6?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2awesome, now we put both sides together: x = 3x + 6 but we're not done yet

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what happens when you subtract 3x from each side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would it become x=3x+3x+6?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2not quite. let's break it down into two steps: this is the left side: x this is the right side: 3x + 6 now SUBTRACT 3x from the left side, what do you get?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2remember how we added + 2 before? it's the same thing, except you SUBTRACT 3x instead of ADDING 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Not quite, what is x minus 3x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2easier question, what is 1  3?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2right! so what do you think x  3x is?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are you saying that it is 2x?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2YES! we're done with the left side, let's move to the right side: 3x + 6 now subtract 3x and tell me what you get!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.06x? 3x+6=9x 9x6x=(3x)?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I'm not sure where you're getting 9x "subtract 3x" means minus 3 x 3x + 6  3x = ?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2easier question: what is a + b  a?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Right! so what is 3x + 6  3x?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no, please try again... easier question: what is 3x  3x?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2right, and 0x is the same as 0, right? so what is 3x + 6  3x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont get it i thought it was 6x

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2nope, it's just 6! here is the original problem: 3x + 6  3x see how 6 is in the middle?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it's 6! REMEMBER: 6 is NOT the same as 6x

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2anyway, now that you understand, let's put the left side and the right side together again: 2x = 6, do you agree?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2can you solve for x now?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2YES! We're about halfway there. Now look at the original problem: Line A = x  2 Line B = 3x + 4 let's look at line A: y = x  2 we know that x = 3, so what is y?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would that be 2y, 2y, 2, or 2

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2y = x  2 = (3)  2 = ?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2not quite, please check your math again

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2nope, please try again: what is 3  2?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2RIGHT! since y = x  2 AND x = 3, we know that y = 3 2, since we can replace x with 3 anyway, we know that x = 3 and y = 5 so the solution is (x,y) = (3,5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it a or b i thought it was b

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2YES, it's b. (3,5) is where line A and line B intersect

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that's what I meant by "solve for x" and "solve for y". It just means, find the value of x and y
