You plant an 8-inch-tall tomato plant that grows 5 inches taller each week. On the same day, you plant a 14-inch-tall tomato plant that grows 3.5 inches taller each week. Graph a system of equations that represents the heights y (in inches) of the plants after x weeks. Use the graph to solve the system.

  1. y = 5x + 8

    y = 3.5x + 14

    You need to graph each equation on the same graph paper and see where the two lines cross. That point is your answer.

    I will give you a start.
    The first graph has a point (0,8) and the second graph has a point (0, 14)

    Find two more points for each graph and that will help you find your lines.
