if you know that AB=0 and A not=to B, what can you say about the equation Ax+By=1? Describe the graph.

if in Ax + By = 1, AB = 0

then either A =0 or B=0

If A=0, then you have the horizontal line y = 1/B

if B=0, then you have the vertical line x = 1/A

The line above goes through points (-4,-5) and (0,3). What point will the line above go through when y is equal to 8?

You can just look in the back of the textbook, but here is what it says:

The equation will be either

Ax = 1 or By = 1; the graph will be either a vertical or horizontal line.

Here is what I personally wrote:

Either A or B must equal 0, so the equation Ax+By+1 in standard form would either be Ax=1 or By=1. The graph would either be a vertical line or a horizontal line.

OOPS. Sorry I accidentally posted the same thing twice. :D
