Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can you graph the function?

JoannaBlackwelder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It is in the form y=mx+b. You should be able to do this if you are in precalc/calc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm not sure what you mean. Graphing a line is algebra I.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What?! And you are doing limits???? What class are you in?

JoannaBlackwelder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's crazy! Ok, Let me explain how to graph a line first.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1f(x)=mx+b is the same as y=mx+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1m stands for the slope, and b stands for the y intercept

JoannaBlackwelder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The y intercept is where the graph crosses the y axis.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1440701034052:dw The y intercept is how we get our first point on the line.

JoannaBlackwelder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Does that make sense so far?

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, cool. Slope is rise/run

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, we need to write our slope as a fraction.

JoannaBlackwelder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Any ideas on how to write 5 as a fraction?

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Close, that is the reciprocal of 5. 5 as a fraction is 5/1. Good try!

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, that tells us that the "rise" is 5 and the "run" is 1

JoannaBlackwelder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, we go up 5 units and right 1 unit

JoannaBlackwelder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can you try to draw the next point on the graph?

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Start at the point I drew.

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And go up 5 and right 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What coordinate did you end up at?

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When you go up 5 units from 3, we get to positive 2 for y, and right 1 unit from 0, we get to 1 for x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's cool. It is tricky the first time. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1440701649251:dw And through 2 points we can draw a line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok soo im so confused is this part of my answer or is this the other thing

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is the "Graph the function" step

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, to find the limit, we need to look at where the graph approaches x=5 from the right and the left/

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We can't see that far on the graph I drew because it is too small.

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can you try drawing it out on paper and see what you get for y when x=5?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0umm hw and thisis soo hard

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's not so bad. For this one you don't actually have to draw the graph.

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because linear equations are continuous.

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That means that you can just plug in the x value into the formula and get what y is.

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can you try that?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry im just have little time cuz i have to do some remodeling tomy garage here soon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Substitute 5 in for x and simplify.

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, y=5*53 Use the order of operations to simplify

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Start at the top: Parentheses Exponents Multiplication Division Addition Subtraction

JoannaBlackwelder
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So multiplication comes before subtraction.

JoannaBlackwelder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And for continuous functions (meaning no gaps in the graph) that is the limit.
