typo
do you mean -x+y = 1 ????? so y=x+1 if so circle with center at (0,0) and radius 1 line through (0,1) and (-1,0) x^2 + (x+1)^2 = 1 x^2 + x^2 + 2 x + 1 = 1 2 x^2 + 2 x = 0 x(x+1) = 0 x = 0 or x = -1 line hits the circle at the x and y axis intersections

Is it possible if you guys can check my algebra HW
take x from bag 2 take 3x from bag 1 amount now in bag 2 = 100 - x amount now in bag 1 = 100 - 3x 100 - 3 x = (1/2)(100 - x) 200 - 6 x = 100 - x 5 x = 100 x = 20 so bag 1 = 100 - 3(20) = 40 bag 2 = 100 - 20 = 80
