Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just put these point in the place of variable and if they satisfy the equeation then they are solution sets ......

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do I know if they satisfy them? I plugged it in and i got g(x) = 8 and f(x) = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you have a graph showing all of the equations, any solution to all of the equations will be a point at which all of the equations intersect. Is (2,0) such a point?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For the same value of \(x\), both \(f(x)\) and \(g(x)\) must be equal for that value of \(x\) to be a solution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh so I just plug in 2 for x in both of my solutions and 0 for y?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[y = f(x) = x1+1\]\[y = g(x) = 3x+2\]If we think \(x=2\) might be a solution, then \[f(2) = g(2)\]but \[f(2) = 21+1 = 2\]and \[g(2) = 3(2) +2 = 8\] and those are not equal...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, you could also do it that way as a check: \[0 = f(2) = 21+1\checkmark\]so far, so good, but let's try the other equation, which also must work: \[0 = g(2) = 3(2)+2 = 8\]Bzzt, wrong! So \((2,0\) is NOT a solution to that system of equations.
