Meal tickets at the circus cost
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\$}4.00\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ for children and
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\$}12.00\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ for adults. If
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{1,650}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ meal tickets were bought for a total of
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\$}\mathrm{14,200},$ how many children and how many adults bought meal tickets?
A system of linear equations consists of two or more equations made up of two or more variables such that all equations in the system are considered simultaneously.
The solution to a system of linear equations in two variables is any ordered pair that satisfies each equation independently. See
[link] .
Systems of equations are classified as independent with one solution, dependent with an infinite number of solutions, or inconsistent with no solution.
One method of solving a system of linear equations in two variables is by graphing. In this method, we graph the equations on the same set of axes. See
[link] .
Another method of solving a system of linear equations is by substitution. In this method, we solve for one variable in one equation and substitute the result into the second equation. See
[link] .
A third method of solving a system of linear equations is by addition, in which we can eliminate a variable by adding opposite coefficients of corresponding variables. See
[link] .
It is often necessary to multiply one or both equations by a constant to facilitate elimination of a variable when adding the two equations together. See
[link] ,
[link] , and
[link] .
Either method of solving a system of equations results in a false statement for inconsistent systems because they are made up of parallel lines that never intersect. See
[link] .
The solution to a system of dependent equations will always be true because both equations describe the same line. See
[link] .
Systems of equations can be used to solve real-world problems that involve more than one variable, such as those relating to revenue, cost, and profit. See
[link] and
[link] .

Can a system of linear equations have exactly two solutions? Explain why or why not.
No, you can either have zero, one, or infinitely many. Examine graphs.
If you are performing a break-even analysis for a business and their cost and revenue equations are dependent, explain what this means for the company’s profit margins.
If you are solving a break-even analysis and there is no break-even point, explain what this means for the company. How should they ensure there is a break-even point?
Given a system of equations, explain at least two different methods of solving that system.
You can solve by substitution (isolating
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ or
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ ), graphically, or by addition.
The center is at (3,4) a focus is at (3,-1) and the lenght of the major axis is 26 what will be the answer?
Rima
I done know
Joe
What kind of answer is that😑?
Rima
I had just woken up when i got this message
Joe
Can you please help me. Tomorrow is the deadline of my assignment then I don't know how to solve that
Rima
i have a question.
Abdul
how do you find the real and complex roots of a polynomial?
Abdul
@abdul with delta maybe which is b(square)-4ac=result then the 1st root -b-radical delta over 2a and the 2nd root -b+radical delta over 2a. I am not sure if this was your question but check it up
Nare
This is the actual question: Find all roots(real and complex) of the polynomial f(x)=6x^3 + x^2 - 4x + 1
Abdul
@Nare please let me know if you can solve it.
Abdul
I have a question

hello guys I'm new here? will you happy with me

The average annual population increase of a pack of wolves is 25.
Period =2π
if there is a coefficient (b), just divide the coefficient by 2π to get the new period
Am
if not then how would I find it from a graph
Imani
by looking at the graph, find the distance between two consecutive maximum points (the highest points of the wave). so if the top of one wave is at point A (1,2) and the next top of the wave is at point B (6,2), then the period is 5, the difference of the x-coordinates.
Am
you could also do it with two consecutive minimum points or x-intercepts
the range is twice of the natural number which is the domain

A cell phone company offers two plans for minutes. Plan A: $15 per month and $2 for every 300 texts. Plan B: $25 per month and $0.50 for every 100 texts. How many texts would you need to send per month for plan B to save you money?
Hey I am new to precalculus, and wanted clarification please on what sine is as I am floored by the terms in this app? I don't mean to sound stupid but I have only completed up to college algebra.
I don't know if you are looking for a deeper answer or not, but the sine of an angle in a right triangle is the length of the opposite side to the angle in question divided by the length of the hypotenuse of said triangle.
Marco
can you give me sir tips to quickly understand precalculus. Im new too in that topic.
Thanks
Jenica
if you remember sine, cosine, and tangent from geometry, all the relationships are the same but they use x y and r instead (x is adjacent, y is opposite, and r is hypotenuse).
Natalie
it is better to use unit circle than triangle .triangle is only used for acute angles but you can begin with. Download any application named"unit circle" you find in it all you need. unit circle is a circle centred at origine (0;0) with radius r= 1.

What is domain
johnphilip
the standard equation
of the ellipse that has vertices (0,-4)&(0,4) and foci (0, -15)&(0,15)
it's standard equation is x^2 + y^2/16 =1
tell my why is it only x^2? why is there no a^2?
This term is plural for a focus, it is used for conic sections. For more detail or other math questions. I recommend researching on "Khan academy" or watching "The Organic Chemistry Tutor" YouTube channel.
