A pair of equations is shown below:
y = 8x − 9
y = 4x − 1
Part A: Explain how you will solve the pair of equations by substitution or elimination. Show all the steps and write the solution. (5 points)
Part B: If the two equations are graphed, at what point will the lines representing the two equations intersect? Explain your answer. (5 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thats just to show you the answer. Now if we are going to use substitution and elimination

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright i will draw you some things for elimination, and tell me if you don't get it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually nah i don't like elimination, substitution is always easier. so, because both of these equations are equal to y, we set them equal to each other: see how 8x  9 = y, well we can just put in 8x  9 = 4x  1 then we solve: 8x  9 = 4x  1 4x = 8 x = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The reason we can plug in the equations and set them equal to each other is because they both are equal to y, and this is very helpful for the future. And the answer to part 2 is in the attachment I sent earlier

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you're going to go on the left side and type the equation into one box, then click right underneath that box and type the next equation in and it will graph it for you, and you will see where they intersect

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's the right one, ok so all you have to do is click right in that box and type, and the graph will pop up. You can either type in 8x  9 or y = 8x  9 (the calculator knows what you're saying either way)
