question

Solve the following system of equations by substitution and select the correct answer below:
4x β 6y = 28
8x β 4y = 24

answer

4x - 6y = 28......(1)
8x - 4y = 24......(2)
Using Equation (2)
8x - 4y = 24
8x = 24 + 4y
x = 3 + 1/2y....(2)
Substituting x = 3 + 1/2y
into Equation (1)
4(3 + 1/2y) - 6y = 28
12 + 2y - 6y = 28
Collect like terms:
2y - 6y = 28 - 12
-4y = 16
y = -4
Substitute y = -4 into
Equation (1)
4x - 6y = 28

question

Mark went to an electronic store, purchased 2 CDs and 6 DVDs, and spent $156. Antonio went to the same store, bought 1 CD and 9 DVDs, and spent $210. How much does each CD sell for at the store?

answer

Let C be CD's
Let D be DVD's
2C + 6D = 156
C + 9D = 210
6D = 156 - 2C
3D = 78 - C
C + 9D = 210
C + 3(78 - C) = 210
C + 234 - 3C = 210
234 - 210 = 3C - C
24 = 2C
12 = C
The cost of one CD is $12

answer

[1] 4x + 7y - 2z = 0
[2] 3x - 5y + 3z = 9
[3] 3x + 6y - z = 1
Solve by Substitution :
// Solve equation [3] for the variable z
[3] z = 3x + 6y - 1
// Plug this in for variable z in equation [1]
[1] 4x + 7y - 2β’(3x+6y-1) = 0
[1] -2x - 5y = -2
// Plug this in for variable z in equation [2]
[2] 3x - 5y + 3β’(3x+6y-1) = 9
[2] 12x + 13y = 12
// Solve equation [2] for the variable y
[2] 13y = -12x + 12
[2] y = -12x/13 + 12/13
// Plug this in for variable y in equation [1]
[1] -2x - 5β’(-12x/13+12/13) = -2
[1] 34x/13 = 34/13
[1] 34x = 34
// Solve equation [1] for the variable x
[1] 34x = 34
[1] x = 1
// By now we know this much :
x = 1
y = -12x/13+12/13
z = 3x+6y-1
// Use the x value to solve for y
y = -(12/13)(1)+12/13 = 0
// Use the x and y values to solve for z
z = 3(1)+6(0)-1 = 2
Solution :
{x,y,z} = {1,0,2}

answer

Answer: B. (β7, β2)
SOLVINGS
y^2 + x^2 = 53 ..... (Equation I)
y β x = 5 ..... (Equation II)
Make y the subject of equation II
y = x + 5 ..... (Equation III)
Substitute (x + 5) for the value of y in Equation I
β΄ (x + 5)^2 + x^2 = 53
x^2 + 10x + 25 + x^2 = 53
2 x^2 + 10x + 25 = 53
2 x^2 + 10x + 25 - 53 = 0
2 x^2 + 10x - 28 = 0 ..... (Equation IV)
Factor 2 out of equation IV;
2 (x^2 + 5x - 14) = 0 ..... (Equation V)
Divide both sides of equation V by 0
β΄ x^2 + 5x - 14 = 0
x^2 + (7x - 2x) - 14 = 0
x^2 + 7x - 2x - 14 = 0 ..... (Equation VI)
Divide Equation VI into two groups (x^2 + 7x and - 2x - 14)
x + 7 is a common factor in both groups
Factor out x + 7 in Equation VI
β΄ x(x + 7) - 2(x +7) = 0
(x - 2) (x +7) = 0
β΄ x - 2 = 0 OR x + 7 = 0
x = 2 OR x = -7
x = 2, -7
If x = 2
Substitute 2 for the value of x in equation II
y β x = 5
y - 2 = 5
y = 5 +2
y = 7(x =2, y =7) ... Not included in the options
If x = -7
Substitute -7 for the value of x in equation II
y β x = 5
y - (-7) = 5
y + 7 = 5
y = 5 - 7
y = -2(x = -7, y = -2) .... This tally with option B

question

Amy purchased 17 pencils and 18 pens for a fund-raiser at school and spent $61.50. Jocelyn purchased 10 pencils and 21 pens and spent $57. How much does each pencil cost?

answer

Let,
pencils be "x"
pens be "y"
According to the question,
17x + 18y = 61.50 ----------> equation (1)
10x + 21y = 57 -----------------> equation (2)
Now,
Taking equation (1),
17x + 18y = 61.50
18y = 61.50 - 17x
y = (61.50 - 17x ) / 18 -----> equation (3)
Now, substituting the value of "y" in equation (2), we get,
10x+21 (61.50-17x/18)=57
10x+7 (61.50-17x/6)=57
10x+ 430.50-119x/6=57
10x*6/6 430.50-119x/6=57
60x/6+ 430.50-119x/6=57
430.50+60x-119x/6=57
430.50-59x=342
59x=430.50-342
x=88.5/59
x=1.5
So, Each pencil costs $1.5

ur 2 equations are :
y = 1/3x - 2 and y = 1/4x + 11...but we need them in standard form...
y = 1/3x - 2
-1/3x + y = -2 ..multiply by 3
-x + 3y = -6.....or 3y - x = -6 <==
y = 1/4x + 11
-1/4x + y = 11 ...multiply by 4
-x + 4y = 44 or 4y - x = 44

question

What type of solutions do the methods for solving systems of equations find and how does this relate to setting the equations equal to each other?

answer

A system of equations is a set of two or more equations that share two or more unknowns. The solutions to a system of equations are the total amounts that make all of the equations true, as well as the locations where the graphs of the equations intersect. You can determine a system of linear equations through graphing, linear combination and substitution. Systems of nonlinear functions, for example, quadratic or exponential equations, can be managed with the equivalent methods.

question

Solve the following system of equations and show all work.
y = 2x2
y = β3x β1

answer

Since both right sides of each equation is equal to y, we can set them equal to each other.
2xΒ² = -3x - 1
Let's get everything on the left side...
2xΒ² + 3x + 1 = 0
Let's solve this quadratic by splitting the middle...
We want two #'s that add up to 3 and multiply to 2. (2Γ1)
These are 2 and 1. Let's split the middle into 2x and x.
2xΒ² + 2x + x + 1 = 0
Factor the first and last two terms.
2x(x+1)+1(x+1) = 0
(2x+1)(x+1) = 0
If any value of x makes either factor evaluate to 0, it is a solution.
2x + 1 = 0 β 2x = -1 β x = -1/2 β y = 2(-1/2)Β² = 2(1/4) = 1/2
x + 1 = 0 β x = -1 β y = 2(-1)Β² = 2(1) = 2
Our solutions are (-1/2, 1/2) and (-1, 2).

Number of orders in a = number of month + 2
f(x) = x + 2.
Number of orders out = 2 number of month + 1
g(x) = 2x - 1
So, in words, the numbers of orders is equal to the number of month plus 1. This represents a linear function, with slope 1 and y-intercept 2. And the numbers of orders out is also a linear function with slope 2 and y-intercept - 1.

question

Determine whether the point (1, 1) is a solution to the system of equations. Explain your reasoning in complete sentences.

answer

The solutions to the system of equations are the point of intersection of the graphs of the equations.
The point of intersection of the graphs of the given equation is (0, 2). Therefore, point (1, 1) is not a solution to the system of equation.

question

How do you use properties of exponents and logarithms to rewrite functions in equivalent forms and solve equations?

answer

The exponential function of the base a, so the generic form is f (x) = a ^ x, as a positive number beside one.
Every exponential function of form f (x) = a^x, act with these Properties -
1. The function applied to the zero value is always equal to 1: f (0) = a ^ 0 = 1
2. The exponential function of 1 is always equal to the base: f (1) = a ^ 1 = a.
3. The exponential function of a total is equal to the product of the use of the function on each value separately.
f (m + n) = a ^ (m + n) = a ^ m Β· a ^ n = f (m) Β· f (n).
4. The exponential function of subtraction is equal to the quotient use to a quantity or number which another is to be subtracted, then divided by the application to the quantity or number to be subtracted from another:
f (p - q) = a ^ (p - q) = a ^ p / a ^ q
Logarithm: In the log (b), a is called the base of the logarithm and b is called an argument, with a and b positive.
Consequently, the definition of logarithm is: log b = n --> a ^ n = b (a > 0, b > 0)
