    this is just a matter of subbing in your answer choices into the equation to see if it is true. I will do the first one for you... y = 8x using (0,8)...x = 0 and y = 8 now we sub 8 = 8(0) 8 = 0 (this is not a solution because it is false you wanna ry the next answer choice ?

    8x, -1 = x and 8 = y 8 = 8(-1) 8 = -8, it isnt true. So B isnt an option

    x = 1.5, y = 10 8 = 1.5(10) 8 = 15 is not correct, That leaves D. But I want to make sure it is D.

    x = 2, y = 16 8 = 2(16) 2(16) = 32.........Not the answer....Now I am confused o.O

    you got your numbers (x and y) mixed up y = 8x (1.5,10) 10 = 8(1.5) 10 = 12 (it is still false, but be careful of where you put your x and y numbers

    y = 8x.....(2,16)...x = 2 and y = 16 16 = 8(2) 16 = 16 (correct....so it is D)

    Not really. Still kinda confused tho. I dunno why, because you stated how to do you clearly.

    just remember, in all points, the x is the first number and the y is the second (x,y)
