# 11.1 Use the rectangular coordinate system  (Page 6/13)

 Page 6 / 13

Find three solutions to the equation: $2x+3y=6.$

Find three solutions to the equation: $4x+2y=8.$

Let’s find some solutions to another equation now.

Find three solutions to the equation $x-4y=8.$

## Solution   Choose a value for $x$ or $y.$   Substitute it into the equation.   Solve.   Write the ordered pair. $\left(0,-2\right)$ $\left(8,0\right)$ $\left(20,3\right)$

So $\left(0,-2\right),\left(8,0\right),$ and $\left(20,3\right)$ are three solutions to the equation $x-4y=8.$

$x-4y=8$
$x$ $y$ $\left(x,y\right)$
$0$ $-2$ $\left(0,-2\right)$
$8$ $0$ $\left(8,0\right)$
$20$ $3$ $\left(20,3\right)$

Remember, there are an infinite number of solutions to each linear equation. Any point you find is a solution if it makes the equation true.

Find three solutions to the equation: $4x+y=8.$

Find three solutions to the equation: $x+5y=10.$

## Key concepts

• Sign Patterns of the Quadrants
( x , y ) ( x , y ) ( x , y ) ( x , y )
(+,+) (−,+) (−,−) (+,−)
• Coordinates of Zero
• Points with a y- coordinate equal to 0 are on the x- axis, and have coordinates ( a , 0).
• Points with a x- coordinate equal to 0 are on the y- axis, and have coordinates ( 0, b ).
• The point (0, 0) is called the origin. It is the point where the x- axis and y- axis intersect.

## Practice makes perfect

## Writing exercises

Have you ever used a map with a rectangular coordinate system? Describe the map and how you used it.

How do you determine if an ordered pair is a solution to a given equation?

## Self check

After completing the exercises, use this checklist to evaluate your mastery of the objectives of this section.

If most of your checks were:

…confidently. Congratulations! You have achieved the objectives in this section. Reflect on the study skills you used so that you can continue to use them. What did you do to become confident of your ability to do these things? Be specific.

…with some help. This must be addressed quickly because topics you do not master become potholes in your road to success. In math, every topic builds upon previous work. It is important to make sure you have a strong foundation before you move on. Who can you ask for help? Your fellow classmates and instructor are good resources. Is there a place on campus where math tutors are available? Can your study skills be improved?

…no—I don’t get it! This is a warning sign and you must not ignore it. You should get help right away or you will quickly be overwhelmed. See your instructor as soon as you can to discuss your situation. Together you can come up with a plan to get you the help you need.

I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
