 Question 5074: Write the equation of a line that passes through the points (-2,4) and (4, -1). Click here to see answer by lotanez(23)

 Question 5097: Find the equation of each line. Write each answer in slope-intercept form. The line through (1,4) with slope 1/4 This is what I came up with. y- 1 = 1/4 {x - 4} y - 1 = 1/4x - 1 Answer is : y = 1/4 x + 1 I'm not sure if this is correct or not. I am so struggling with algebra. Thanks to all who help. I greatly appreciate it. Click here to see answer by rapaljer(4667)

 Question 5513: I do not understand how the book came up with this answer here is the two equations they are similar however they have different numbers. #(1) 3/(2x+1)-1/x = 2x/x(2x+1) this is what I am doing I am multilplying each side by the lcd which is [x(2x+1)]. I understand that there is some canceling out that's why the rightside of the equation is 2x, but how did they get the ans. 3x-(2x+1) for the leftside of the equation. what happens to the 1/X? I can't see how this answer came to be. Please help me. :) Mrs. Shavette Wiggins Click here to see answer by guapa(62)

 Question 5680: Here's the question: Sorry for it being so long Solve each system by the addition method x/3 - y/2 = -5/6 x/5 - y/3 = -3/5 This is what I did: 6*x/3 - 6*y/2 = 6*-5/6 2x - 3y = -5 15*x/3 - 15*y/3 = 15*-3/5 3x - 5y = -9 -3(2x - 3y) = -3*-5 -6x + 9y = 15 2(3x - 5y) = 2*-9 6x - 10y = -18 -6x + 9y = 15 6x - 10y = -18 -1y = -3 y = 3 for the first eq I substituted 3 for y to find x x/3 - 3/2 = -56 6*x/3 - 6*3/2 = 6*-5/6 2x - 9 + 9 = -5 + 9 2x = 4 x = 2 TO TEST: 2/3 - 3/2 = -5/6 6*2/3 - 6*3/2 = 6*-5/6 4/3 - 9/2 = -5/6 (do you just subtract 9 from 4 and multiply the two denominators to get 6?) (this is where I get stuck. Or is this how to test?) 2/5 - 1 = -3/5 (2/5 - 1/1 = -3/5) (I think this tests right. I hope) I can't figure out how to test this. I think I got the right answers for x and y, but I can't figure out how to test to see if they are correct. I tried, but it's not working out. I must be missing a step somewhere. Please help! Thank you. Maybe I got it right and am looking for something that isn't there. Algebra. ARGHHHHHHHHHH! Click here to see answer by lotanez(23)

 Question 5793: Okay - today I am stuck with linear equations.... I have solved the equation, but something is not right becasue when I go to substitute into the equation, it does not equal.... Please help!! Thanks! Here's the first: -5z-3-4(z+1)=2z+6 I solved it and came up with -13/11. This however does not check. and number two: -3[-6p+4-5(p-1)=-2p-5 I solved this and came up with -8/35. Again, this will not check. Finally number three: 2p=5(2p+5) I solved this and came up with -8/25. And you guessed it, this did not check. HELP!!! I believe I solved them correctly, but why are they not checking??? Click here to see answer by arunpaul(104)
