Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this is just a matter of subbing and seeing which ones are true. Lets try the first one... x + 3y >= 8 (5,1)....x = 5 and y = 1 now we sub 5 + 3(1) >= 8 5  3 >= 8 8 >= 8  correct because 8 = 8 so this is a solution. You want to try the next one ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x + 3y >= 8 (0,3)...x = 0 and y = 3 now we sub 0 + 3(3) >= 8 can you finish and see if it is true ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.19 is less than 8 so false

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wait...your sign is greater then or equal It is saying 9 is greater then or equal to 8....so it is false

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sorry just looked at sign so it'll still be false because 9 is not greater than 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1keep this in mind....with positive numbers, the bigger the number, the greater it is...but with negatives, the smaller number is greater

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x + 3y >= 8...x = 1 and y = 2 1 + 3(2) >= 8 1  6 >= 8 7 >= 8......this is true

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I was just about to submit 7>=8 which is true. Instead of me multiplying 3 *2 I did 3*2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it takes practice and patience. You will one day be helping others learn this stuff. So your solutions are A,C,D because B and E were false....but you already knew this so why am I telling you...lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Which is the graph of y ≤ 1 – 3x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I said A because it has a solid line, and its less than so it goes to the left

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y = 3x + 1  I just rearranged it and temporarily removed the < sign y intercept is 1 or (0,1) x intercept can be found by subbing in 0 for y.. 0 = 3x + 1 3x = 1 x = 1/3 ... or (1/3,0) now back to your signs....it contains an equal sign, so it is a solid line. It is < (less then) so shading occurs below (or to the left) of the line. the correct graph is : A...you are correct :)
