1. a) Determine if the ordered pair (2, ¼) is a solution of the equation
(1/8)x + 3y = 1
b) Explain why or why not the pair is a solution.

Solution:
Yes, it is a solution.

Put x = 2, y = ¼ in left hand side of equation
(1/8)x + 3y = (1/8)*2 + 3*(1/4) = ¼ + ¾ = 1

Thus, it is a solution.

2. a)Graph or describe fully the graph of the equation y = (2/3)x + 1.
b) Show the table method with values for x of 0, -3, and -6 to plot points.

Solution:
Table of values is
x y
0 (2/3)*0 + 1 = 1
-3 (2/3)*(-3) + 1 = -2 + 1 = -1
-6 (2/3)*(-6) + 1 = -4 + 1 = -3

The graph is shown below:

3.
For the graph shown, identify the:
a) x - intercept
b) y - intercept

Solution:

x-intercept: (4, 0)
y-intercept: (0, -5)

4.
For the graph shown, identify the:
a) x - intercept b) y - intercept

(a) x-intercept: none
(b) y-intercept: (0, -2)
5. For the equation 6x - 4y = 12, identify
a) x - intercept
Put y = 0
6x = 12
X = 2
x-intercept = (2, 0)

b) y - intercept
Put x = 0
-4y = 12
y = -3
y-intercept = (0, -3)
