OpenStudy (anonymous):

Line M is represented by the following equation: x − y = 8 Which equation completes the system that is satisfied by the solution (18, 10)? 2x − y = 26 x + y = 18 2x − 2y = 36 x − y = −28

(18,10) tells us that x = 18 and y = 10 so, go through each answer choice one by one, and plug in x = 18 and y = 10, and see which one is true

please do not guess, go through each answer choice one by one and plug in the numbers

Vocaloid (vocaloid):

start with the first choice: 2x − y = 26, true or false?

Vocaloid (vocaloid):

right, so 2x - y = ?

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

26

2 years ago
Vocaloid (vocaloid):

right. the first choice says that 2x − y = 26, so this is our answer

Line M is represented by the following equation: x + y = −1 What is most likely the equation for line P so the set of equations has infinitely many solutions? 2x + 2y = 2 2x + 2y = 4 2x + 2y = −2 x − y = 1

Vocaloid (vocaloid):

hint: multiply x + y = -1 by 2 on both sides

im so confused ;c

Vocaloid (vocaloid):

just multiply everything by 2.... x + y = -1

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

so x+y=-1 multiplied by 2 would be 2x+2y=-2?

Two lines, A and B, are represented by the following equations: Line A: y = x − 1 Line B: y = −3x + 11 Which of the following options shows the solution to the system of equations and explains why? (3, 2), because the point does not lie on any axis (3, 2), because one of the lines passes through this point (3, 2), because the point lies between the two axes (3, 2), because both lines pass through this point

hint: first multiply line A by 3

not quite, you need to multiply EVERYTHING by 3

3y=3x-3

Vocaloid (vocaloid):

right, next step: line A: 3y = 3x - 3 line B: y = -3x + 11 now add line A + line B

nope, check your math again... 3y + y = ?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

what does y equal?

2 years ago
Vocaloid (vocaloid):

we're about to find out! now, when we add line A and line B together, we get 4y on the left side. and -3+11 on the right side. so 4y = -3+11

2 years ago
Vocaloid (vocaloid):

-3+11 = ?

8

2 years ago
Vocaloid (vocaloid):

right. so 4y = 8 what is y?

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

4?

2 years ago
Vocaloid (vocaloid):

4y = 8 divide both sides by 4, what do you get?

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

1,2

2 years ago
Vocaloid (vocaloid):

right, so we get y = 2

2 years ago
Vocaloid (vocaloid):

now we go to our second equation: y = -3x + 11 now we plug in y = 2 2 = -3x + 11 what is x?
