PLZ HELP-WILL 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)
(2, 3)
(3, 2)

Do you have any thoughts on how to start?

- anonymous

Easy math.

- JoannaBlackwelder

Maybe it is for you, @JacobRobloxian but I'm sure you didn't know how to do a problem like this at some point.

- anonymous

Im trying to solve it hold on.

- JoannaBlackwelder

:-)

- anonymous

I would say either c or d but

- JoannaBlackwelder

Give steps if you want to help, not letter answers, @JacobRobloxian

- anonymous

Well 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.

- JoannaBlackwelder

|dw:1439928926327:dw| I would substitute what y equals in for the other equation.

- anonymous

When you get the (x,y) that will be the point where the lines intersect.

- JoannaBlackwelder

|dw:1439928993220:dw| See how I subbed that in?

- anonymous

yes i do

- JoannaBlackwelder

Sweet :-) Can you solve for x?

- anonymous

yes, give me one sec to work it out :)

- JoannaBlackwelder

Sure thing :-)

- anonymous

I'm having a hard time solving it :0

- anonymous

Try 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.

- JoannaBlackwelder

|dw:1439929323531:dw| First combine like terms.

- anonymous

ok i see now

- JoannaBlackwelder

|dw:1439929409830:dw| :-) One more step of combining like terms

- anonymous

@JoannaBlackwelder Great work, thank you for completely running through it with this poster! (:

- JoannaBlackwelder

Thanks :-) and you're welcome

- JoannaBlackwelder

Any ideas for the next step?

- anonymous

is that 2 slashed out or no?

- JoannaBlackwelder

I'm not sure what you mean. I subtracted 2 on both sides. How do you think that would simplify?

- anonymous

divide on each side??

- JoannaBlackwelder

Yep, good. What does that give?

- anonymous

im not sure what to divide on each side though

- JoannaBlackwelder

|dw:1439929759309:dw| 3/2 is multiplied by x, so we need to divide by 3/2 to get x by itself.

- JoannaBlackwelder

|dw:1439929805492:dw| Can you simplify that fraction?

- anonymous

right, ok ok i get it now, but no i can't do that

- anonymous

Your 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

- JoannaBlackwelder

Yep, that is one method :-)

- anonymous

ohhh i see u turn the 2 into a fraction thanks @Mikeyy1992 and @JoannaBlackwelder

- anonymous

but i still don't get the graphing points

- anonymous

Of course, we're here to help, there are many methods to solve a puzzle, ever need help tag us. You're welcome! (:
What do you not get?

- JoannaBlackwelder

The graphs intersect at the solution.

- JoannaBlackwelder

We found the x coordinate to be 2 so far.

- anonymous

ok i see

- JoannaBlackwelder

So now we need to find the corresponding y value.

- JoannaBlackwelder

:-)

- anonymous

got it

- anonymous

:)

- JoannaBlackwelder

Great!

- anonymous

oh no i mean like yes we have to get the y value sorry :)

- JoannaBlackwelder

It's good. We can plug that x value into either equation and solve for y.

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

so what is y

- anonymous

@Mikeyy1992

- anonymous

All you have to do is plug in x into the equation you have already. (:

- JoannaBlackwelder

|dw:1439930372656:dw|

- anonymous

C?

- anonymous

@Mikeyy1992 @JoannaBlackwelder

- JoannaBlackwelder

Yep, great!

- anonymous

yay thank u guys sm :D
