Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When you have something like this: \(\large\rm y\lt \color{orangered}{2x+3}\) Think of it like this: \(\large\rm y\lt \color{orangered}{\text{the line}}\) The orange part represents the line. So in this example, we want all of the `y values` which are `less than` `the line`. So in this example we would shade `below` the line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How bout in your problem? y is GREATER THAN some line. So where we gonna shade?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large\rm y\gt\frac{3}{5}x2\]Recall that the origin is the point (0,0). So let's just plug it in... and find out if the inequality holds true!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large\rm 0\gt\frac{3}{5}\cdot02\]After you simplify this a bit, does the inequality hold true?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So after simplifying, we have, 0 > 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hmm that appears to hold true, ya? 0 is larger than 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok good! So we figured out that the point (0,0) DOES in fact satisfy our inequality. So it is included in the shaded area.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Given the system of equations presented here: 3x + 5y = 29 x + 4y = 16 Which of the following actions creates an equivalent system such that, when combined with the other equation, one of the variables is eliminated? Multiply the second equation by −1 to get −x − 4y = −16 Multiply the second equation by −3 to get −3x − 12y = −48 Multiply the first equation by −1 to get −3x − 5y = −29 Multiply the first equation by −3 to get −9x − 15y = −87

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You're trying to match up the coefficients on either the x's or the y's, but not both. If we wanted to match up the x's, maybe we would need some kind of 3. If we wanted to match up the y's, it would be a little more difficult. We would multiply the first equation by 4, and the second equation by 5. They would then both have coefficients of 20, one of them being negative. So they would combine nicely. They didn't do that here though. They went the easier route. They're matching up the x's somehow.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We want them to match. Notice the first equation already has a 3, so it doesn't need anything more.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So what do you wanna do to the second equation to match them up?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The first equation has 3x. The second equation has x. If we add 1 to x, hmm I'm not really sure what that will do for us :d We want the same number of x in both equations.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We don't want to add. We want to multiply that second equation by some number that will turn it from x to some kind of 3x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you would multiply it by 3 then

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Good good good, we would multiply the second equation 3! That would give us 3x. But in order for them to combine, and disappear, we want one of them to be negative. So let's instead multiply the second equation by negative 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Option D talks about changes to equation 1. We were making changes to equation 2.
