(EF 2452) Problem Set#1 Due: Week 2, Tutorial Class Please write your name, student ID and tutorial number on top of your answer sheet. Q1. { Practice Problem 6 (pg. 24) from Chapter 1.1 in Jacques’ textbook } Find the coordinates of the points where the line x - 2 y = 3 intersects the axes. Hence sketch it’s graph. What is the slope of this line? Q2. Sketch a graph of the following lines: (a) y = - x ; (b) y = | x | ; (c) y = | x | x Note: | x | = b x if x 0 - x if x < 0 Q3. { Practice Problem 5 (pg. 46) from Chapter 1.2 in Jacques’ textbook } Sketch the following lines on the same diagram: 2 x - 3 y = 6 , 4 x - 6 y = 18 , x - 3 2 y = 3 Hence comment on the nature of the solutions of the following systems of equations: (a) 2 x - 3 y = 6 , x - 3 2 y = 3
