    1) Answer: d
    3x+4y=5, then move left to the right and get 0=5-3x-4y, so 5-3x-4y=0

    2) Answer a
    A vertical line has the form x=a. It passes through the point (-3,5), then a=-3. So the vertical line is x=-3

    3) Answer b
    When we plug in, we get 4*(-5)+5*8=-20+40=20, which satisfies the equation 4x+5y=20

    4) Answer d
    We plug in (1,1), then 2*1+4*1=6<=7 holds. Thus (1,1) satisfies the inequality 2x+4y<=7

    5) Answer c
    By the point-slope form, the equation of the line is y-12=(2/7)(x-14). To find y-intercept, we set x=0, then we get y-12=(2/7)*(-14)=-4. Then y=8. So the y-intercept is (0,8).

    6) Answer d
    A union B means either female professors or professors under 40. So the statement d is correct.

    7) Answer c
