1.
Solve .
Correct Answer
C. -1
Explanation
The given answer, -1, is obtained by subtracting the second fraction, 25/7, from the sum of the first fraction, 3/7, and the third fraction, 1. This can be written as (3/7) + (1) - (25/7) = -1.
2.
Solve
Correct Answer
A. 1/4
Explanation
The answer is 1/4 because when you subtract -1/4 from 1/4, you get 2/4, which simplifies to 1/2. Then, when you subtract 4 from 1/2, you get -7/2. Finally, when you subtract -4 from -7/2, you get -15/2, which simplifies to -7.5. Therefore, the correct answer is 1/4.

Using the table on pg 155 #38 in your textbook, find the linear model that is the best fit for the data to 3 decimal places, where x is the number of years after 2000.
Correct Answer
C. Y = 271.595x + 16283.726
Explanation
The correct answer is y = 271.595x + 16283.726 because it matches the given linear model equation format y = ax + b. The coefficient of x is 271.595, which means that for every increase of 1 in the number of years after 2000, the value of y will increase by 271.595. The constant term is 16283.726, which represents the initial value of y when x is 0 (in the year 2000). Therefore, this equation represents the best-fit linear model for the given data.

Solve for x and y by graphing:
y = 2x + 3 and
y = -4x + 12
Correct Answer
A. X = 1.5, y = 6
Explanation
The correct answer is x = 1.5, y = 6. This answer is obtained by graphing the two equations and finding the point where the two lines intersect. The intersection point represents the values of x and y that satisfy both equations simultaneously. In this case, the point of intersection is (1.5, 6), which means that when x is 1.5, y is 6 and vice versa.
8.
Solve for x and y using substitution:
4x - 2y = 10 and
y = -3 - 2x
Correct Answer
D. X = 0.5, y = -4
Explanation
By using substitution, we can substitute the value of y from the second equation into the first equation. Substituting y = -3 - 2x into 4x - 2y = 10, we get 4x - 2(-3 - 2x) = 10. Simplifying this equation, we have 4x + 6 + 4x = 10, which further simplifies to 8x + 6 = 10. Subtracting 6 from both sides, we get 8x = 4. Dividing both sides by 8, we find x = 0.5. Substituting this value of x back into the second equation, we find y = -4. Therefore, the solution is x = 0.5 and y = -4.
9.
Solve for x and y using elimination/combination:
3x + 2y = 0 and
2x - y = 7
Correct Answer
B. X = 2, y = -3
Explanation
To solve the given system of equations using elimination/combination, we can multiply the second equation by 2 and then add it to the first equation. This will eliminate the y term and allow us to solve for x.
Multiplying the second equation by 2 gives us:
4x - 2y = 14
Adding this to the first equation:
3x + 2y + 4x - 2y = 0 + 14
7x = 14
Dividing both sides by 7:
x = 2
Substituting this value of x into the second equation:
2(2) - y = 7
4 - y = 7
-y = 3
y = -3
Therefore, the solution to the system of equations is x = 2 and y = -3.

The average salary of clasroom teacher in the United States is given by the function f(t) = 982.06t + 32903.77, where t is the number of years after 1990. In what year was the average teacher salary $40,760.25 according to the model?
Correct Answer
B. 1998
Explanation
The given function f(t) represents the average salary of classroom teachers in the United States as a linear equation. To find the year when the average salary was $40,760.25, we need to solve the equation 982.06t + 32903.77 = 40760.25. By rearranging the equation and solving for t, we get t = (40760.25 - 32903.77) / 982.06. Simplifying the expression gives us t = 7.99. Since t represents the number of years after 1990, we can conclude that the average teacher salary of $40,760.25 was reached in the year 1990 + 7.99 = 1998.
