Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok i think graphing would be the easiest way to do this :D do u have geogebra app?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and no i dont have a graphing app

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmm is it fine if i graph it and u determine how many solutions the line will have? solution is just the intersection so it's easy :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2great! :D so first are u familliar with the slopeintercept formula?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but yes i am familiar with y=mx+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it's cool :) so i guess you know that m stands for slope and b represents the yintercept

Godlovesme

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2awesome! so if two lines have the same slope, it means thy are parallel. And if two lines are parallel, they will NEVER intersect which means there will be no solution so do u see any lines with the same slope?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok that makes sense and idk i dont know how to graph them

Godlovesme

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no we dont need to graph it if we find any two equations that have the same slope for example y= 3x +1 and y= 3x +2 have the same slope,3 so the lines are parallel so there is no solution ( they will never intersect) make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what about the last on is that no solution?

Godlovesme

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so if u look at the first pair, you can tell that they have the same slope because x is the same thing as 1x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and the second last one is no solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hold on we're on the first one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2y= x 2 y= x 6 do this equations have the same slope? ^^

Godlovesme

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2um actually they do, look x means 1x so we will have y= 1x 2 y= 1x 6 they both have a slope of 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhh... i thought they didnt because of the 2 and the 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that's the yintercept , the slope is the one with x :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont get these they are very confusing sooo the numbers dont count ?

Godlovesme

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2sorry about the confusion :/ butt here y=mx+b we will be given numbers for m and b like y= 2x + 3 m = slope b= yintercept so in this case our slope is 2 and the yintercept is 3 got it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk i just suck at everything that has to do with graphs and slopes :/

Godlovesme

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no it's okay just remember m represents slope and b represents yintercept okay

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok so can u remember that m means slope and b means yintercept ?please :DD sorry if i sound rude

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes ma'am i remember

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im just confused about how do you know if its one solution or infinity

Godlovesme
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we'll get there but for now you have to know how to determine the slope and yintercept dw:1433842646745:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so if m is slope then whats the slope in the above equation?

Godlovesme

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2YES!! :DDDD *high fives* great job! :D what about the yintercept?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03... i understand all of that

Godlovesme
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh okay so now do u understand why i said the first two pairs have the same slope?

Godlovesme
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2awesome so since they are parallel they will be included in the "no solution" section :) got it?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeahh is the next one 1 solution ?

Godlovesme

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2YES! awesome job! :D

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is the rest 1 solution?

Godlovesme

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no the third one is different and maybe the rest as well for the 3rd one we have y=3x+4 and 2y=6x+8 lets change 2y= 6x+8 in to y=mx+b form by dividing 2 from both sides 2y/2 = 6x/2 + 8/2 y= 3x+4 now we have the SAME equation! :O this means the lines have infinitely many solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2im glad :D let's move to the fourth one we have y=3 and x= 6 one sec, i'll post the screenshot of what the graph will look like

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2http://prntscr.com/7f1e2v so how many intersections do u see? :P

Godlovesme
