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.
