 Question 69430: plotting ordered pairs so that each is a solution for the given equation: This is my problem 3x+4y=12 (0, ) ( ,3/4) ( ,0) (8/3, ) I have spent about 4 hours working on this. I tried solving for both x and y then plugging the number in. That didnt work out. I have tried graphing it to see if I could make more sense out of it that way, and that didnt help me much, and I believe it confused me worse. PLease Help!!

 Question 71219: A worker tearing down a barn, uses a pinch bar 4 ft. long with the shorter end 2in. from the fulcrum. If the worker can excert a force of 150 lbs. at one end of the pinch bar, how great a force can he excert at the other end? (Note the differences in units, 2 in. and 4 ft. Units must be the same when using the lever formula.) w1 d1 = w2d2 I'm lost after this. Can you help? Dorothy Click here to see answer by checkley75(3666)
