    Problem Set3:

    1) Where does the graph of the equation y=mx+b cross the x-axis?

    A) b B) m/b C b/m D) - (b/m) E) -(m/b)

    Hint: When a line crosses the x axis, its y value will be zero at the crossing point. So put y = 0 in the equation and find x

    0 = mx + b  x = (-b/m)

    2)What angle does the line y=mx+b make with the x-axis?

    A) tan^-1(m/b) B) tan^-1(b/m) C) tan^-1(m) D) tan^-1(b) E) x/y

    For the line y=mx+b, the slope of the line is given by m. The angle is given by the inverse Tangent of the slope. So angle = Tan-1(m)

    3) There are five ...
