Practice Problem #1 What is the sum of the solutions for y = x + 3 3x + y = 5 ANSWER

3
Answer 1) What is the sum of the solutions for y = x + 3 3x + y = 5 Return to Practice Problems

4
Practice Problem #2 Solve. Write your answer as an ordered pair. -0.5x + y = - 1 y - 1 = 2 -7x + 2 ANSWER

5
Answer 2) Step 1: solve each equation for y -0.5x + y = - 1 becomes y = 0.5x - 1 y - 1 = 2 -7x + 2 becomes y = -7x +5 Step 2: solve by substitution 0.5x – 1 = -7x x = 6 x = 0.8 Step 3: use y - 1 = 2 -7x + 2, substitution 0.8 for x y – 1 = 2 – 7(0.8) + 2 y = 2 – y = -0.6 Answer: (0.8, -0.6) Return to Practice Problems

6
Practice Problem #3 Solve the system. What is the sum of x and y? y = 9x + 20 y = -1/3 x + 13 ANSWER

7
Answer 3) y = 9x + 20 y = -1/3 x + 13 Use substitution 9x + 20 = -1/3x /3x 9 1/3x + 20 = 13 Return to Practice Problems 9 1/3x + 20 = /3x = /3 x = -3/4 y = 9(-3/4) + 20 y = Sum is Sum is 12.5

8
Practice Problem #4 Solve. What is the product of x and y? 2y = 3x + 4 y = -2x ANSWER

9
Answer 4) Solve. What is the product of x and y? 2y = 3x + 4 y = -2x Answer: -0.5 Return to Practice Problems

Practice Problem #5 Clair bought three bars of soap and five sponges for $2.31. Steve bought five bars of soap and three sponges for $3.05. Find the cost of each item. ANSWER

11
Answer 5) Let x = price per bar of soap, y = price per sponge 3x + 5y = x + 3y = 3.05 x = $0.52 y = $0.15 Return to Practice Problems

Practice Problem #6 Kendra owns a restaurant. She charges $1.50 for 2 eggs and one piece of toast, and $.90 for one egg and one piece of toast. Write and graph a system of equations to determine how much she charges for each egg and each piece of toast. Let x represent the number of eggs and y the number of pieces of toast. ANSWER

13
Answer 6) Let e = price per egg, t = price per slice of toast 2e + t = 1.50 e + t = 0.90 $0.60 per egg $0.30 for toast Return to Practice Problems
