Homework Help: Algebra--please help!

Posted by Celina on Wednesday, December 17, 2008 at 3:42pm.

I really need help with my math homework today, because I am totally confused! Please give me the answer, but also walk me through it, too, so I can fully understand it, because just the answer won't really help.

#1: A math teacher wants to curve a set of grades. *Just a note, I don't even understand what curve means* She wants to create a formula to turn an old grade, s, into a new grade, t, where t = As + B for some constants A and B. She wants this formula to give a 100 to a student who originally scored 100, and a score of 81 to a student who originally scored 62.

a. How can we view the pairs of original and new scores as points on a line?
b. Use your answer to part a. to determine A and B in the formula.
c. What grade should a student who originally scored 74 receive?

I will post more questions in a little bit. Thank you so much, any help is appreciated, even if you can only answer part of it.

Thanks!
