    Solving Inequalities: AX+B < C Solve for x:8x - 2 > -8

    • A.

      X > -3/4

    • B.

      X > -3/10

    • C.

      X > -9/5

    • D.

      X > -7/3

    Correct Answer
    A. X > -3/4
    Explanation
    To solve the inequality 8x - 2 > -8, we can start by adding 2 to both sides of the inequality to isolate the term with x. This gives us 8x > -6. Then, we divide both sides of the inequality by 8 to solve for x. Since dividing by a positive number does not change the direction of the inequality, we have x > -3/4. This means that any value of x greater than -3/4 will satisfy the inequality.

    • D.

      X < 1/7

    Correct Answer
    C. X > -1/2
    Explanation
    To solve the inequality 2x - 2 > -3, we can start by adding 2 to both sides of the inequality to isolate the variable term. This gives us 2x > -1. Then, we divide both sides of the inequality by 2 to solve for x. Since we are dividing by a positive number, the direction of the inequality remains the same. Therefore, x > -1/2 is the correct solution.

    Solving Inequalities: AX+B , CX+D Solve for x:-x + 10 < -8x - 4

    • A.

      X > 1/11

    • B.

      X > 1/2

    • C.

      X > 11/5

    • D.

      X < -2

    Correct Answer
    D. X < -2
    Explanation
    To solve the inequality, we need to isolate the variable x. First, we can simplify the equation by adding 8x to both sides and subtracting 10 from both sides. This gives us 7x > -6. To isolate x, we divide both sides of the inequality by 7. However, since we are dividing by a negative number, the inequality sign must be flipped. Therefore, x < -2 is the correct answer.

    Solving Inequalities: AX+B , CX+D Solve for x:-5x - 6 < x + 3

    • A.

      X > -3/2

    • B.

      X > 11/7

    • C.

      X > -4

    • D.

      X > 11/4

    Correct Answer
    A. X > -3/2
    Explanation
    To solve the inequality, we need to isolate the variable x. We can do this by subtracting x from both sides of the inequality: -5x - 6 - x < x + 3 - x. Simplifying this gives us -6x - 6 < 3. Next, we can add 6 to both sides: -6x - 6 + 6 < 3 + 6. Simplifying further gives us -6x < 9. Finally, we can divide both sides by -6, remembering to reverse the inequality sign because we are dividing by a negative number: -6x/-6 > 9/-6. Simplifying this gives us x > -3/2. Therefore, the correct answer is x > -3/2.

    • C.

      -2x + 9y = -1

    • D.

      X + 9y = 66

    Correct Answer
    A. -11x + 11y = -77
    Explanation
    The equation of a line can be determined using the point-slope form, which is y - y₁ = m(x - x₁), where (x₁, y₁) is the given point and m is the slope. In this case, the given point is (-1, -8) and the slope is 1. Plugging these values into the point-slope form, we get y - (-8) = 1(x - (-1)), which simplifies to y + 8 = x + 1. Rearranging the equation, we get x - y = -9, which can be rewritten as -11x + 11y = -77. Therefore, the correct answer is -11x + 11y = -77.

      -3x + y = 8

    Correct Answer
    D. -3x + y = 8
    Explanation
    The equation -3x + y = 8 is the correct answer because it represents a line that is parallel to the given line 9x - 3y = 7. The reason for this is that the slope of both lines is the same. The given line can be rewritten in slope-intercept form as y = (9/3)x - 7/3, which has a slope of 9/3. The equation -3x + y = 8 can also be rewritten in slope-intercept form as y = 3x + 8, which also has a slope of 9/3. Therefore, both lines have the same slope and are parallel to each other. Additionally, the equation -3x + y = 8 passes through the point (-3, -1) as required.

    • D.

      5x + 8y = -4

    Correct Answer
    C. -x + y = 8
    Explanation
    To find the equation of a line that is perpendicular to another line, we need to find the negative reciprocal of the slope of the given line. The given line has a slope of -8/8, which simplifies to -1. The negative reciprocal of -1 is 1. Therefore, the perpendicular line will have a slope of 1. We also know that the perpendicular line passes through the point (-10, -2). Using the point-slope formula, we can write the equation of the line as y - (-2) = 1(x - (-10)), which simplifies to y + 2 = x + 10. Rearranging the terms, we get the equation -x + y = 8.

    • D.

      10x^2 + 55x - 8

    Correct Answer
    D. 10x^2 + 55x - 8
    Explanation
    The given expression is a subtraction of two polynomials. To subtract polynomials, we need to combine like terms. In this case, we have:

    (6x^2 + 60x - 9) - (-4x^2 + 5x - 1)

    When we remove the parentheses and combine like terms, we get:

    6x^2 + 60x - 9 + 4x^2 - 5x + 1

    Simplifying further, we combine the x^2 terms, the x terms, and the constant terms separately:

    (6x^2 + 4x^2) + (60x - 5x) + (-9 + 1)

    This gives us:

    10x^2 + 55x - 8

    Therefore, the correct answer is 10x^2 + 55x - 8.

    Correct Answer
    A. (x - 1) (x - 6)
    Explanation
    The given expression is a quadratic trinomial in the form of ax^2 + bx + c. To factor it, we need to find two binomials that, when multiplied together, will give us the original trinomial. In this case, we need to find two binomials whose product will be x^2 - 7x + 6. By trial and error, we find that (x - 1) and (x - 6) are the correct binomials. When we multiply them together, we get x^2 - 7x + 6, which matches the original trinomial. Therefore, the correct answer is (x - 1) (x - 6).

    Explanation
    The given expression can be factored by grouping. We can group the terms as (14xy - 18by) and (-21ax + 27ab).

    In the first group, we can factor out 2y, which gives us 2y(7x - 9b).
    In the second group, we can factor out -3a, which gives us -3a(7x - 9b).

    Now we have (2y - 3a)(7x - 9b), which is the factored form of the expression.

    Correct Answer
    D. ( w^3) ( y^21) ( x^3)
    Explanation
    The given expression is a product of several terms, each containing variables raised to different exponents. To simplify the expression, we can combine the terms that have the same variable and add their exponents. In this case, we have variables x, y, and w. For x, we have x^2 in the first term and x^3 in the last term. When we multiply these together, we get x^(2+3) = x^5. Similarly, for y, we have y^7 in the first term and y^21 in the last term. Multiplying these together gives us y^(7+21) = y^28. Finally, for w, we have w^3 in both the first and last terms, so we simply keep w^3. Therefore, the simplified expression is (w^3)(y^21)(x^5).

    Explanation
    The given expression involves simplifying a polynomial with negative exponents. To simplify, we can apply the exponent rules. When we raise a power to another power, we multiply the exponents. In this case, we have (x^-10 * y^10)^4. When we raise a negative exponent to an even power, it becomes positive. So, (x^-10)^4 becomes x^40. Similarly, (y^10)^4 becomes y^40. Therefore, the simplified expression is (x^40)(y^40).
