A pair of equations is shown below:
y = 8x − 9
y = 4x − 1

Haha already? Alright so, very similar to the last question:

Thats just to show you the answer. Now if we are going to use substitution and elimination

oksy

Alright i will draw you some things for elimination, and tell me if you don't get it

- anonymous

Actually 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

- anonymous

The 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

- anonymous

ohh!

- anonymous

Now if you need me to repeat anything at all, let me know :)

- anonymous

well where exactly do they intersect

- anonymous

Alright now it's your turn :) pull up desmos.com/calculator

- anonymous

i did

- anonymous

you'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

- anonymous

1.7?

- anonymous

screenshot what you're doing and send it as an attachment so I can help you with what you've got going wrong for the future

- anonymous

can screen shot on this P.C

- anonymous

darn ok, well let me give you a quick tutorial then

That'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)

- anonymous

now right underneath that box, you can click and another box will be outlined and let you type in it

- anonymous

ok hold on

They intersect at (2,7)

- anonymous

YES THATS WHAT I GOT!!!!!!!!

- anonymous

There you go :) Now I completely believe in your ability to use this tool in the future, it can solve so many of your questions, but if you still aren't sure just tag me and I will do my best to help you :)
