Hello I'm having some difficulities learning about the graphing, slopes, and equations, can you please help me with this:

The price of an amusement park ticket is greather than or equal to $29 The inquality is?

find the slope x+2y=4

A. M=

B. or undefined

(1.)identify the y-intercept

y=1/4x (type the ordered pair)

2. y=4/3x+2 (the y intercept is?)

3.y=-10x+8

4. y=-1/3x+2

5.what is the y-intercept?

2x-4y=32

what is the x-intercept?

6. is -4 is a solution of the inequality?

(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

(g) 2x-4y=32

-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,, :)
