(a) first, represent the unknown with a variable,,
*let P = price of amusement park ticket
the sign of greater than is > ; greater than or equal to is > with underline (but here i will use >=):
P >= 29
(b) if you're given an equation and you need the slope, you must transform this equation into y = mx + b (this is called the slope-intercept form, because m=slope and b=y-intercept),, thus:
x + 2y = 4
2y = 4 - x
y = (-1/2)x + 2
thus, m = -1/2
(c) y = 1/4x -- already in the slope-intercept form [discussed in (b)]
thus, y-int = b = 0
(d) y=4/3x+2 ; thus, b = 2
(e) y=-10x+8 ; thus, b = 8
(f) y=-1/3x+2 ; thus, b = 2
-4y = 32 - 2x
y = (1/2)x - 8 ; thus b = -8
*to get x-intercept, let y = 0:
2x - 4(0) = 32
2x = 32
x = 16
(h) if it refers to (a), -4 is not a solution, since -4 is not greater than or equal to 29
so there,, :)
