PLZ HELPWILL FAN AND MEDAL
x + y = 5
y = one halfx + 2
If the two equations are graphed, at what point do the lines representing the two equations intersect?
(2, 5)
(5, 2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well first solve for x, then plug it in either of the equations to get a corresponding y, it doesn't matter which one you pick.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3dw:1439928926327:dw I would substitute what y equals in for the other equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Try and plug in one of your choices for the x and y values. He gave you the right equations to help you input those values from your choices.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3dw:1439929759309:dw 3/2 is multiplied by x, so we need to divide by 3/2 to get x by itself.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your x/y value which was not used. 3/2x = 3 3/2x into 3. Consider, 3/2 x 2 = 6/2 6 divided by 2 is 3. Which would give you your answer. 2/1 = 2 3/2 * 2/1 6/2 x = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh no i mean like yes we have to get the y value sorry :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3It's good. We can plug that x value into either equation and solve for y.
