k that's enough.. anyway for a we can just use substitution.
suppose we have two equations
y=8x-9 and y=4x-1. If we subsitute y =4x-1 into the first equation, we obtain
we need all the variable terms on the left side of the equation and all of the constant terms on the right side of the equation. Therefore, subtract 8x from both sides and add one on both sides
-4x-1 = -9
-4x-1+1 = -9+1
-4x = -8
dividing -4 on both sides we obtain x = 2
-4x = -8
x = 2
now to check to see if we got the right answer we substitute x = 2 back into the original equations
y=8x-9 and y=4x-1.
y = 8(2) - 9 = 16-9 =7
y=4(2)-1 = 8-1 = 7
Both of our y values are 7
7 = 8x -9
7 = 16-9
7 = 4x-1
Since we have 7 on both sides when x = 2, we have the correct answer.
wow thank you
as for part B
I think I have already done it.. when two equations intersect, they have a point in common
If we let x = 0 1 2 for y=8x-9, we have
x y =8x-9
1 8-9 = -1
2 16-9 = 7
Similarly, for y =4x-1
x y =4x-1
1 4-1 =3
2 8-1 = 7
both of these equations have the point (2,7) in common. So the two lines will meet at point (2,7) . I would draw on OS, but lately their drawing system has been going nuts.
okay thank you
thanks so much
you can use what I typed on here xD!
yeah i am lol
you got more time, i will post the other question in a different post so you can earn snother medal
