Which description best describes the solution to the following system of equations?
y = −one halfx + 9
y = x + 7
Lines y = −one halfx + 9 and y = x + 7 intersect the xaxis.
Lines y = −one halfx + 9 and y = x + 7 intersect the yaxis.
Line y = −one halfx + 9 intersects the origin.
Line y = −one halfx + 9 intersects line y = x + 7.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do the two function have the same yintercept? If so, then they intersect ion is at the yaxis, if not then they don't intersect at the yaxis at all. Do the two function have the same xintercept? If so, then they intersection is at the xaxis, if not then they don't intersect at the xaxis at all.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you have no idea what an origin mean, then take a look at this graph. Do you think the two lines are located at the origin (0,0)? dw:1433462825582:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\Large y = −\frac{1}{2}x + 9\) \(\Large y = x + 7\) Does the functions intersect at (0,0) meaning do both of the equations has the input x=0 and y=0 as the output? Plug x=0 and see what you get for y in both of the equations. Can you do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\large y = −\frac{1}{2}x + 9 \) what is y when x=0? \(\large y = x + 7\) what is y when x=0?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.17 is correct for the second equation, but how did you get 8.5 for the first equation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so both of the equations have different yintercept and it doesn't lie on the origin. None of them had y=0 when x=0, and they each had a different yintercept. The first equation had (0,9) and the second equation had (0,7).
