Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    (2, 3) (1, 5)

    • A.

      2

    • B.

      -2

    • C.

      1

    • D.

      -1

    Correct Answer
    B. -2
    Explanation
    The given answer of -2 is obtained by subtracting the second coordinate (3) from the first coordinate (2). Therefore, 2 - 3 = -1. However, since the second coordinate (5) is greater than the first coordinate (1), the result is negated, resulting in -(-1) = -1. Thus, the correct answer is -1.

  • 2. 

    (-6, 1) (2, 1)

    • A.

      0

    • B.

      -0

    • C.

      Undefined

    • D.

      -4

    Correct Answer
    A. 0
    Explanation
    The answer is 0 because the y-coordinate of both points (-6, 1) and (2, 1) is the same. Therefore, the slope between the two points is 0, indicating that the line connecting them is horizontal.

  • 3. 

    (3, 0) (5, 0)

    • A.

      Undefined

    • B.

      -0

    • C.

      0

    • D.

      2

    Correct Answer
    C. 0
    Explanation
    The given answer is 0. This is because the points (3, 0) and (5, 0) lie on the same horizontal line, which means the slope of the line passing through these points is 0. The slope of a line represents the change in y-coordinates divided by the change in x-coordinates between two points. Since the y-coordinates of both points are the same, the change in y-coordinates is 0. Therefore, the slope is 0, which is the correct answer.

      0

    • B.

      -1/5

    • C.

      -5

    • D.

      Undefined

    Correct Answer
    D. Undefined
    Explanation
    The given points (5, 3) and (5, -2) have the same x-coordinate, which means they lie on a vertical line. A vertical line has an undefined slope because the denominator of the slope formula becomes zero. Therefore, the slope between these two points is undefined.

    (3, -2) (7, -1)

    • A.

      -1/4

    • B.

      1/4

    • C.

      -4

    • D.

      4

    Correct Answer
    B. 1/4
    Explanation
    The given question provides two points, (3, -2) and (7, -1), and asks for the answer. To find the answer, we need to find the slope of the line passing through these two points. The slope is determined by the change in y-coordinates divided by the change in x-coordinates. In this case, the change in y is -1 - (-2) = 1, and the change in x is 7 - 3 = 4. Therefore, the slope is 1/4.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Using the function, y = -5x, what would y equal if x were equal to 0?

    • A.

      -5

    • B.

      -1/5

    • C.

      0

    • D.

      Undefined

    Correct Answer
    C. 0
    Explanation
    If x were equal to 0, the value of y would be determined by substituting x with 0 in the given function y = -5x. This would result in y = -5(0) = 0. Therefore, if x were equal to 0, y would also be equal to 0.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Using the function, y = 3x + 1, what would y equal if x were equal to 2?

    • A.

      5

    • B.

      -7

    • C.

      4

    • D.

      7

    Correct Answer
    D. 7
    Explanation
    If we substitute x=2 into the function y=3x+1, we get y=3(2)+1=7. Therefore, if x were equal to 2, y would equal 7.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Using the function, y = -2x + 11, what would y equal if x were equal to 3?

    • A.

      5

    • B.

      -5

    • C.

      17

    • D.

      -17

    Correct Answer
    A. 5
    Explanation
    Substituting x = 3 into the given function, y = -2x + 11, we get y = -2(3) + 11 = -6 + 11 = 5. Therefore, if x were equal to 3, y would equal 5.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Using the function, y = 7x - 3, what would y equal if x were equal to 4?

    • A.

      -5

    • B.

      25

    • C.

      31

    • D.

      -31

    Correct Answer
    B. 25
    Explanation
    If we substitute x = 4 into the equation y = 7x - 3, we get y = 7(4) - 3 = 28 - 3 = 25. Therefore, y would equal 25 if x were equal to 4.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Using the function, y = -x, what would y equal if x equals -3?

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      3

    • C.

      -3

    • D.

      -1

    Correct Answer
    B. 3
    Explanation
    When using the function y = -x, we substitute x with -3 to find the value of y. Therefore, y = -(-3) = 3.
