I just graphed both lines and they intersect at (0.75, 3) and (3,6)
Ok, I assumed that I wasn't allowed to graph anything but is that wrong then?
well you got 2 different points
Yeah but if I could just graph to get the two points it would probably be easier since I went so wrong with my calculations. So what I mean is, if I graphed to get those two points that would be allowed?
does it say in your instructions if you can or not?
not specifically. in the examples they give you before the questions, some of them say 'first draw a graph' but then they calculate it anyway
so yea I got the graph for you
Ok, that will be easier then. I just used the points you got and tried getting the length but I got the wrong answer? I got -3.94 instead of the correct answer which is 3.75
Oh nevermind I think I see where I went wrong, let me try again quick
how'd you get -3.94?
Oh apparently I changed one of the signs by accident. Whoops. I am getting the right thing now though. Sorry for all the trouble and thanks very much for your help!
