Linear Equations

Determine if the given ordered pair is a solution to the equation:

4. -3x + y = -2 (0,2)

6. 2x - y = -3 (-2, -1)

Find the specified values:

8. 6x - 3y = 12 x-intercept & y-intercept

10. 4x - 2y = 6 slope & y-intercept

Re-write the equations in the specified form:

12. y = 2x -3 write in standard form (Ax + By = C)

Derive the slope - intercept equations:

14. Slope = -3, passing through point (-2,3)

16. Passing through points (3, -4) & (-2, -1)

Determine if the given ordered pair is a solution to the equation:

4. -3x + y = -2 (0,2)

No, as -3*0 + 2 =2.

6. 2x - y = -3 (-2, -1)

Yes, as 2*(-2) -(-1)=-4+1=-3.

Find the specified values:

8. 6x - 3y = 12 x-intercept & y-intercept

To get y-intercept, we let x=0. From 6x - 3y = 12, we have
6*0 - 3y = 12
So,
...
