You would shade the fourth quadrant (bottom right).

Step-by-step explanation:

Due to the domain and range sets, you're given the facts that x must be greater than or equal to 0, but y is less than or equal to zero. This gives you what quadrant the graph should be in. Since you're not given an equation to follow like y=ax+b, then I can not say that this will give you a line.

[tex]8 + \frac{4}{5} = \frac{40 + 4}{5} \\ = \frac{44}{5} = 8.8 \\ thank \: you[/tex]


The line (y-1)=(2/3)(x+1) contains point (a,-3).

What is the value of a? Show
your work.




Step-by-step explanation:

The line (y-1)=(2/3)(x+1) contains point (a,-3)

=> (-3-1) = (⅔)(a+1)

-4 = (⅔)(a+1(

(a+1)= -4 ÷ ⅔

a + 1 = -4 × 3/2

a+ 1 = -6

a = -6-1

a = -7

The value of 'a' will be;

⇒ a = - 7.

What is substitution method?

To find the value of any one of the variables from one equation in terms of the other variable is called the substitution method.

Given that;

The equation of line is,

⇒ (y - 1) = (2/3) (x + 1)

And, The point on the line = (a, - 3)


Since, The point on the line = (a, - 3)

Hence, It satisfy the equation of line.

Substitute x = a and y = - 3, we get;

⇒ (y - 1) = (2/3) (x + 1)

⇒ (- 3 - 1) = (2/3) (a + 1)

⇒ - 4 × 3 = 2a + 2

⇒ - 12 - 2 = 2a

⇒ 2a = - 14

⇒ a = - 7

Thus, The value of a = - 7

Patterns are set of rules that guide the creation of a dataset. The observation from the first three designs are as follows:

The pattern is that the number of tiles increases as the design number increasesThe expressions for the number of tiles are [tex]n^2 + 2(n + 2)[/tex] and [tex]n^2 + 2n + 4[/tex]The expression can be proved to be equivalent using graph technology The points on the curve make sense in this scenario because all values are positiveThe pattern is quadratic.The largest design number that can enter an empty 10 by 12 ft sign is design number 8

The pattern

The first three design show that, as the design number increases (i.e. 1, 2, 3), the number of tiles used also increases (i.e. 7, 12, 19)

The expressions for the number of tiles

The design number and the number of tiles is represented as follows

[tex]1 \to 7[/tex]

[tex]2 \to 12[/tex]

[tex]3 \to 19[/tex]

From the designs, we observe that some tiles are at the middle, while other tiles are at the sides.

Design 1 has 1 tile at the center and 6 tiles at either sides.

So, we have:

[tex]1 \to 1 + 6[/tex]

[tex]2 \to 4 + 8[/tex]

[tex]3 \to 9 + 10[/tex]


[tex]1 \to 1^2 + 6 \to 1^2 + 2 \times 3 \to 1^2 + 2 \times (1 + 2)[/tex]

[tex]2 \to 2^2 + 8 \to 2^2 + 2 \times 4 \to 2^2 + 2 \times (2 + 2)[/tex]

[tex]3 \to 3^2 + 10 \to 3^2 + 2 \times 5 \to 3^2 + 2 \times (3 + 2)[/tex]

Notice the pattern,

The number of tiles in design n will be:

[tex]Tiles = n^2 + 2 \times (n + 2)[/tex]

Open bracket

[tex]Tiles = n^2 + 2n + 4[/tex]

Hence, the expressions for number of tiles in design n are:

[tex]n^2 + 2(n + 2)[/tex] and [tex]n^2 + 2n + 4[/tex]

Technology to prove that both expressions are equivalent

To prove that [tex]n^2 + 2(n + 2)[/tex] and [tex]n^2 + 2n + 4[/tex] are equivalent using technology, the graphs of [tex]n^2 + 2(n + 2)[/tex] and [tex]n^2 + 2n + 4[/tex] can be plotted and then compared

The table and graph for the first 6 designs

The table entry for the first 6 designs is calculated as follows:

[tex]n = 1\ \ \ \ \ Tiles = 1^2 + 2 \times 1 + 4 = 7[/tex]        

[tex]n = 2\ \ \ \ \ Tiles = 2^2 + 2 \times 2 + 4 = 12[/tex]        

[tex]n = 3\ \ \ \ \ Tiles = 3^2 + 2 \times 3 + 4 = 19[/tex]        

[tex]n = 4\ \ \ \ \ Tiles = 4^2 + 2 \times 4 + 4 = 28[/tex]        

[tex]n = 5\ \ \ \ \ Tiles = 5^2 + 2 \times 5 + 4 = 39[/tex]        

[tex]n = 6\ \ \ \ \ Tiles = 6^2 + 2 \times 6 + 4 = 52[/tex]        

So, we have:

[tex]\begin{array}{cc}Design & {Tiles} & {1} & {7} & {2} & {12} & 3 & {19} & {4} & {28} & {5} & {39}& {6} & {52} \ \end{array}[/tex]

See attachment for the graph of the above table

All the points on the curve make sense in this scenario because all values are positive.

The pattern type

We have:

[tex]Tiles = n^2 + 2n + 4[/tex]

When an equation has a degree of 2, the equation is quadratic.

Hence, the pattern is quadratic.

The largest design that an empty sign of 10ft by 12ft can contain.

From the first three designs:

The number of tiles on a complete row and column are always the same.

Design 1 has 3 tiles in its complete row and column

Design 2 has 4 tiles in its complete row and column

Design 3 has 5 tiles in its complete row and column

The relationship between the design number (d) and the number of complete tiles (t) is:

[tex]d = t - 2[/tex]

For the 10ft by 12ft empty sign

[tex]t = 10[/tex] because [tex]10 < 12[/tex]

So, we have:

[tex]d = t - 2[/tex]

[tex]d = 10 - 2[/tex]

[tex]d = 8[/tex]

Hence, the largest design number is design 8

If (x + 4)^2 = 49 and x < 0. what is the value of x?



x = -11

Step-by-step explanation:

To get to 49 by squaring, you need to square 7. Since x can only be negative, you need to get to -7.

-11 + 4 = -7

(-7)^2 = 49


x = -11

Step-by-step explanation:

To get to 49 by squaring, you need to square 7. Since x can only be negative, you need to get to -7.

Is the set of real numbers closed under addition? Explain why or why not. If it is not closed, give an example​


Answer: Yes, the set of real numbers is closed under addition.


Let x and y be two real numbers. Their sum x+y is some other real number. This is what it means when we say the set of real numbers is closed under addition. Taking any two numbers and adding them will get us some other real number.

There is no way to have x+y be nonreal while x,y are both real.

Joanne a total score for a round of darts was -42 she had thrown 6 darts and scored the same each throw How many points did Joanne score on each throw




Step-by-step explanation:



Step-by-step explanation:

Ok, so we know 42 is the number of points added up, and we know that she threw 6 darts all scoring the same. Now, all we have to do is figure out what number(for example x) multiplied by 6 equals 42. Or in the form of an equation:

6x = 42

Now, to finish the equation, all we have to do is divide:

6x/6 = 42/6

please help..



12 miles in a day.

Step-by-step explanation:

Variable x = number of miles

Company A: 120 + 0.20x

Company B: 60 + 0.40x

Set up an equation:

120 + 0.20x = 60 + 0.40x

60 + 0.20x = 0.40x

60 = 0.20x

Line segment JM has endpoints with coordinates 0 and 25 on a number line. Points K and L are on segment JM. K has a coordinate of 5 and point L has a coordinate of 12. Find the probability that a point on JM is placed first on JL and a second point is not placed on KL.



D. 216/625

Step-by-step explanation:

The length of the segment JM is 25 units.The segment JL is between 0 and 12, so is 12 units.The segment KL is between 5 and 12, so is 7 units.

The probabilities for each point:

P(point on JL) = 12/25P(point not on KL) = 1 -  7/25 = 18/25

Required probability:

P = 12/25*18/25 = 216/625

a.) The median player salary for the New York Yankees was $1.5 million in 2007 and $1.7 million in 2013. Write a linear equation giving the median salary y in terms of the year x. (Let y be in millions of dollars and let
x = 7
represent 2007.)

b.) Use the equation to predict the median salary in 2048. (Round your answer to one decimal place.)
$ million


A general linear equation is given by:

[tex]y = a*x + b[/tex]

Where a is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

Here we will find that the linear equation that represents the situation is

[tex]y = 0.033*x + 1.269[/tex]

And we can expect that the median salary in 2048 is $2.853 million

If the line passes through the points (x₁, y₁) and (x₂, y₂) then the slope can be written as:

[tex]a = \frac{y_2 - y_1}{x_2 - x_1}[/tex]

Here we know that:

in 2007 (x = 7) the median player salary was y = $1.5 million

in 2013 (x = 13) the median player salary was y = $1.7 million.

Then we have two points that we can write as:

(7, 1.5)

(13, 1.7)

Note that the y-value is in millions.

Then the slope of the linear equation will be:

[tex]a = \frac{1.7 - 1.5}{13 - 7} = 0.033[/tex]

So the linear equation is something like:

[tex]y = 0.033*x + b[/tex]

To find the value of b, remember the point (7, 1.5), this means that when we have x = 7, we also have y = 1.5, then we can replace these in the above equation:

[tex]1.5 = 0.033*7 + b\\\\1.5 - 0.033*7 = b = 1.269[/tex]

Then the linear equation is:

[tex]y = 0.033*x + 1.269[/tex]

b) Now we want to predict the median salary in 2048. For 2048 the x-value is x = 48

So we just need to evaluate this in the linear equation:

[tex]y = 0.033*48 + 1.269 = 2.853[/tex]

Then the median salary in 2048 will be $2.853 million

4 1/6 = 3 1/3c




1 1/4 =c

Step-by-step explanation:

4 1/6 = 3 1/3c

Change the mixed numbers to improper numbers

4 1/6 = ( 6*4+1)/6 =25/6

3 1/3 = ( 3*3+1)/3 = 10/3

25/6 = 10/3c

Multiply each side by 3/10

25/6 * 3/10 = 10/3c * 3/10
