solve each for t x = 9t+2 9t = x-2 t = (x-2)/9 y = 2t-2 2t = y+2 t = (y+2)/2 so (x-2)/9 = (y+2/2 cross-multiply 2x - 4 = 9y + 18 2x - 9y = 22--> I would have like that from -9y = -2x + 22 y = (2/9)x - 22/9 -- looks like the a)'s have it.

Just translate the English into Math "the length of the sides of each pen if the sides of the triangular pen are 16 less than twice a side of the square Pen." if side of square is x side of triangular pen is 2x-16 perimeter of square --- 4x perimeter of triangle -- 3...

No you can't use the formula for #1 If a = 0 , as it would be for the missing x^2 term, in the formula we are dividing by 2a and since we can't divide by zero, any results would be totally meaningless. So when "they" told you it could be done, tell "them...

re your question about the 13/12 in completing the square, the first thing you do is divide each term by the coefficient of the square term so you have x^2 in front - then take half of the middle term coefficient: 1/2 of 13/6 is 13/12 now square that and add to both sides (13/...

no, you can't do any of that. Since the 3 methods apply to quadratics and you don't have a quadratic in #1, the question is bogus. (That's like asking for 3 ways to bring a sailboat into a dock, when you sitting on a bicycle. )

first of all, the #1 is a linear function So the three methods you are asked to use apply to a quadratic function. So either silly or a typo. I will do the hard one, you must be able to do the other. -6x^2 - 13x + 5 = 0 6x^2 + 13x - 5 = 0 check if it factors: 6*(-5) = -30 does...
