Explain the correct order of steps needed to graph this equation, using the slope-intercept method. Plot the y-intercept (0, 4). Draw a line through the two points. Count up 1 and right 3 from the y-intercept. Plot the x-intercept (−12, 0). 1 solutions Answer 240394 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2010-08-26 18:53:01 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The correct order is: 1) Plot the y-intercept (0, 4). This is given since b=4 (from y=mx+b) 2) Plot the x-intercept (−12, 0). You can find this by plugging in y=0 and solving for x 3) Draw a line through the two points. Since "Count up 1 and right 3 from the y-intercept." refers to a graph with a slope of , but has a slope of 1. So this step is invalid.

Looking at we can see that the equation is in slope-intercept form where the slope is and the y-intercept is Since this tells us that the y-intercept is .Remember the y-intercept is the point where the graph intersects with the y-axis So we have one point Now since the slope is comprised of the "rise" over the "run" this means Also, because the slope is , this means: which shows us that the rise is 6 and the run is 5. This means that to go from point to point, we can go up 6 and over 5 So starting at , go up 6 units and to the right 5 units to get to the next point Now draw a line through these points to graph So this is the graph of through the points and

 Money_Word_Problems/334611: if i earn 6 dollars an hour how long do i have work for 120 dollars1 solutions Answer 239760 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2010-08-24 17:28:00 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!In one hour, you will make 6*1 = 6 dollars. In two hours, you will make 6*2 = 12 dollars. ...etc So in x hours, you will make 6x dollars (6 times x) Since you want $120, this means that . Simply divide both sides by 6 (dividing by 6 undoes multiplying by 6) to solve for x and get So which means that you have to work for 20 hours to earn$120

 Rectangles/334575: what is the trinomial area of a rectangle of (2n-5) (3n-1)1 solutions Answer 239748 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2010-08-24 16:21:11 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given expression. Now let's FOIL the expression. Remember, when you FOIL an expression, you follow this procedure: Multiply the First terms:. Multiply the Outer terms:. Multiply the Inner terms:. Multiply the Last terms:. Now collect every term to make a single expression. Now combine like terms. So FOILs to . In other words, . So the trinomial that represents the area is
 Expressions-with-variables/334574: eight more then twice a number--------how do u make tht an algebraic expression? 1 solutions Answer 239747 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2010-08-24 16:19:03 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!"twice a number" means 2 times some unknown number, say 'x'.

 Polynomials-and-rational-expressions/334568: I need to know how to find out all numbers for which rational expression is not defined. Any help would be greatly appriciated. Thank you. -3 _____ 2x 1 solutions Answer 239745 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2010-08-24 16:11:05 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Since you CANNOT divide by zero, this means that the denominator can't be zero. So . Solve for x to get So this means that 'x' can't be equal to zero. So the rational expression is not defined when x is zero.
 Graphs/334566: what does y=5x+9 looke like graphed?1 solutions Answer 239744 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2010-08-24 16:08:05 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Looking at we can see that the equation is in slope-intercept form where the slope is and the y-intercept is Since this tells us that the y-intercept is .Remember the y-intercept is the point where the graph intersects with the y-axis So we have one point Now since the slope is comprised of the "rise" over the "run" this means Also, because the slope is , this means: which shows us that the rise is 5 and the run is 1. This means that to go from point to point, we can go up 5 and over 1 So starting at , go up 5 units and to the right 1 unit to get to the next point Now draw a line through these points to graph So this is the graph of through the points and
