Solutions:

Problem: 8/3.1

Y=2x+5

(8,y ), (-1,y), (x, -1)

Since points are lying on given line, they will satisfy the given equation.
Case1: (8,y)

y=2*8+5
y =21
Point is (8,21)

Case 2: (-1,y)

y= 2*(-1)+5=-2+5=3

Point is (-1,3)

Case 3: (x,-1)

-1=2x+5
Adding -5 both sides, we get
-1-5=2x+5-5
-6=2x
x=-3
Point is (-3,-1)

Problem 18/3.1

Y= -x+4
Information given can be written in the form of ordered pair as under:
(-2,y), (0,y), (2,y), (x,0), (x,-2)
Missing numbers are represented by x or y.

Case 1 : y=-x+4
(-2,y) lies on the given line, it will satisfy the given equation. So
y=2+4=6
Point is (-2,6)

Case 2:
y=-x+4
(0,y) lies on the given line, it will satisfy the given equation. So
y=0+4=4
Point is (0,4)

Case 3:
y=-x+4
(2,y) lies on the given line, it will satisfy the given equation. So
y=-2+4=2
Point is (2,2)

Case 4:
y=-x+4
(x,0) lies on the given line, it will satisfy the given equation. So
0=-x+4
Solving for x, we get
x=4
Point is (4,0)

Case 5:
y=-x+4
(x,-2) lies on the given line, it will satisfy the given equation. So
-2=-x+4
Solving for x, we get
x=6
Point is ...

Solution Summary

Solution to the various problems explains the steps for finding equation of line passing through given point and slope. It also explains how to determine whether given lines are parrelel or perpendicular to each other.
