### Example Question #11 : How To Write Expressions And Equations

Equations of a line can be represented as follows:

(1) (standard form)

(2) (slope-intercept form)

(3) (point-slope form)

**Possible Answers:**

none of the above

**Correct answer:**

The equation of line is

Hence

and the

### Example Question #12 : How To Write Expressions And Equations

Find the equation of a line parallel to

and passes through .

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The equation of a line parallel to the given line must be of the form:

Since the line passes through ,

we can calculate by replacing with 2 and with 1 which gives us the following

Solving for gives us the following equation

### Example Question #13 : How To Write Expressions And Equations

Find the equation of a line perpendicular to

and passes through

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The slope of a line perpendicular to

which has a slope of , is the negative reciprocal of .

Hence we get

Replacing and with the given point we get

Solving for we get

### Example Question #14 : How To Write Expressions And Equations

Find the equation of a line perpendicular to

and passes through

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Any line perpendicular to ,

which is a horizontal line, must be a vertical line.

Since it passes through the point and must be perpendicular to

The equation must be

### Example Question #11 : How To Write Expressions And Equations

Solve by substitution method:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

From the second equation and by solving for in terms of we get

Replacing in the first equation with

we get

Solving for one gets

Replacing with 4 in the above equation:

Hence the solution to the above system of linear equations is .

### Example Question #932 : Algebra 1

Solve the following system of linear equations by the elimination method:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

We would like to eliminate .

Hence we multiply the first equation by which gives us the following equations:

Adding the above two equations eliminates the variable . We are left with:

and so

Replacing with in the original equation gives us

solving for gives us

Hence the solution is .

### Example Question #15 : How To Write Expressions And Equations

For the following two linear equations determine whether the two lines are __________:

(1) parallel

(2) perpendicular

(3) neither

(4) dependent

**Possible Answers:**

None of the above

Dependent

Parallel

Perpendicular

Neither

**Correct answer:**

Dependent

These two equations represent the same line and they "cross' at infinitely many points. Therefore these systems are dependent.

### Example Question #934 : Algebra 1

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

### Example Question #935 : Algebra 1

Which of the following sentences translates to the algebraic equation ?

**Possible Answers:**

Three subtracted from the product of eight and a number is equal to forty.

Eight multiplied by the difference of three and a number is equal to forty.

The product of eight and a number subtracted from three is equal to forty.

The product of three and a number less eight is equal to forty.

Eight multiplied by the difference of a number and three is equal to forty.

**Correct answer:**

Eight multiplied by the difference of a number and three is equal to forty.

The expression on the left shows eight being multiplied by an expression in parentheses; that expression is the difference of an unknown number and three. The whole right expression is therefore worded as "Eight multiplied by the difference of a number and three"; the equality symbol and the forty round out the answer.

### Example Question #936 : Algebra 1

Which of the following sentences translates to the equation ?

**Possible Answers:**

Five divided by the difference of a number and nine is equal to eighty.

Nine subtracted from the quotient of a number and five is equal to eighty.

Five subtracted from the quotient of a number and nine is equal to eighty.

Five divided into the difference of a number and nine is equal to eighty.

Nine divided by the difference of a number and five is equal to eighty.

**Correct answer:**

Five divided into the difference of a number and nine is equal to eighty.

can be written as "the difference of a number and nine"; the expression on the left shows that difference being divided by five, or, alternatively stated, "five divided *into* the difference of a number and nine". "Is equal to eighty " rounds out the sentence.
