An equation is shown below:
9x  y = 2
Part A: Explain how you will show all of the solutions that satisfy this equation. (4 points)
Part B: Determine three different solutions for this equation. (4 points)
Part C: Write an equation that can be paired with the given equation in order to form a system of equations that is inconsistent. (2 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The slope is 9 and the yintercept is 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, the domain and range for this equation are both infinity to infinity. Which means there's an infinite number of solutions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So that would be Part A?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I suppose so. I mean, there's no way for you to give all of the infinite answers. I suppose you could prove why the domain and range are infinite, but i can't think of anything else.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As for part B, just select three numbers for the x and plug them in and get the y that correlates. Generally you just do 1, 0, and 1 as the numbers for x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure what they want for Part C, do you have any clue?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And put 1, 0, and 1 in for the x of \[y=9x+2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh ok thanks! & for part C they want you to write a similar equation to form a systemof equations that is inconsistent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What do they mean by inconsistent? It's been so long since I've dealt with some of these terms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ohh, just looked it up on purple math. So basically they want a parallel line right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They just want something that isnt staying the same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"Inconsistent system: no solution and no intersection point"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thus a parallel line?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well anyways. To get a parallel line, just keep the slope the same and change the yintercept. \[y=9x+b\] with b being anything but 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So for example just write y= 9x+3 ?
