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 1 and the run is 1. This means that to go from point to point, we can go up 1 and over 1 So starting at , go up 1 unit 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

 Linear-equations/329634: what is the graph of the equation x+5y=251 solutions Answer 236299 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2010-08-07 12:07:32 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given equation. Subtract from both sides. Rearrange the terms. Divide both sides by to isolate y. Break up the fraction. Reduce. 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 -1 and the run is 5. This means that to go from point to point, we can go down 1 and over 5 So starting at , go down 1 unit 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
 Radicals/329636: I need Finding b^2-4ac and the number real solutions for this equation. -3x^2 + 7x = 0 1 solutions Answer 236298 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2010-08-07 12:04:26 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! From we can see that , , and Start with the discriminant formula. Plug in , , and Square to get Multiply to get Subtract from to get So the discriminant is Since the discriminant is greater than zero, this means that there are two real solutions. Note: because the discriminant is a perfect square, this means that the two solutions are rational solutions.
 Proportions/329639: The ratio of men to women at a certain company is 5 to 7. How many male employees does the company have if there are 204 employees? 1 solutions Answer 236297 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2010-08-07 12:02:07 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let x = number of male employees and y = number of female employees So because "there are 204 employees", this means that . Solve for y to get Also, since "The ratio of men to women at a certain company is 5 to 7", this means that (basically the ratio of 'x' men to 'y' women is 5 to 7) Start with the given equation. Plug in Cross multiply Distribute. Subtract from both sides. Subtract from both sides. Combine like terms on the left side. Divide both sides by to isolate . Reduce. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Answer: So the solution is So this means that the company has 85 male employees.
 Finance/328537: A total of $10, 126 was invested into two saving accounts. One account yields 8.5% simple interest and the other 9% simple interest. The person would like to find the amount placed in each account if a total of$901.66 in interest is received after one year. Write a system of linear equations to express this problem. I tried 901.66 = 10126 - (8.5x+9y) But that looks really wrong to me. 1 solutions Answer 235331 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2010-08-03 16:11:40 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!"A total of $10, 126 was invested into two saving accounts" means that where 'x' is the amount invested at 8.5% and 'y' is the amount invested at 9%. So because the total interest from both accounts yields$901.66, this means that Note: 0.085x is the amount of interest from the 8.5% account alone and 0.09y is the amount of interest from the 9% account alone. Add these two up to get the total 901.66 So the system is
