 Question 78797: I THINK slope-intercept form is supposed to be used to solve this question: At the surface of the Atlantic Ocean, the water pressure is the same as the air pressure abov the water, 101.3 KPa (Kilo Pascal). Below the surface, the water pressure increases by 29.9 KPa for every 10 ft of descent. At what depth (approximated to the first digit) is the pressure 690 KPa?

 Question 78466: I'm just having trouble setting up this equation. Find all values of b so that the straight line 3x-y=b touches the circle x^2+y^2=25 at only one point. So I set it up as a system of equations and simplified the linear equation so I could use substitution: y=3x-b x^2+y^2=25 Then I tried to substitute {3x-b} for y in the circle equation: x^2+(9x^2-6xb+b^2)=25 I was stuck as to where to go from here. Mainly, how do I find b? Click here to see answer by renevencer22(21)
