Note from the author:
A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU.

Problem 3 Got It? Reasoning: Before graphing the equations, how can you determine whether a system of equations has exactly one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solution?
Complete all of the graphing in this assignment by hand before checking your work using the embedded Desmos graphing calculator below. After checking your work, you may edit your own graphs.

Concert Tickets: Tickets for a concert cost \$10 each if you order them online, but you must pay a service charge of \$8 per order. The tickets are \$12 each if you buy them at the door on the night of the concert, with no service charge.

a. Write a system of equations to model the situation. Let c be the total cost. Let t be the number of tickets.

b. Graph the equations and find the intersection point.

Writing: Suppose you graph a system of linear equations. If a point is on only one of the lines, is it a solution of the system? Explain.
Yes; As long as the point is on at least one line, it is a solution of the system.
No; A point must be on both lines to be a solution of the system.
22
10 pts
Reasoning: Can a system of two linear equations have exactly two solutions? Explain.
No; Two lines can not intesect in exactly two places. They must intersect in 0, 1, or infinitely-many places (aka overlap one another). This means that a system of linear equations must have 0, 1, or infinitely-many solutions.
Yes; Two lines may intersect at exactly two places. This means that a system of equations may have exactly 2 solutions.

Reasoning: Suppose you find that two linear equations are true when x = -2 and y = 3. What can you conclude about the graphs of the equations? Explain.
You can conclude that the graphs of the linear equations will have at least 2 points of intersection.
You can conclude that the graphs of the linear equations will share the common point (-2, 3).
You can conclude that one of the graphs is a horizontal line and that the other is a vertical line.
