In the topright corner of a clean sheet of paper, write your name, UFID, and section
number. Please use a pen with blue or black ink. When you are nished, FOLD your paper
in half lengthwise and write your name on the back.
√
y = 3x
1. Solve the system of equations:
y =6−x
√
3x = 6 − x ⇒ 3x = x2 − 12x + 36 ⇒ x2 − 15x + 36 = 0 ⇒ (x − 12)(x − 3) = 0 ⇒
x = 12 or x = 3. x = 12 gives 6 in the rst equation, but −6 in the second equation.
Only x = 3 works. 2. If θ is in the standard position such that the terminal point is on the equation x−3y = 0,
with x ≤ 0, nd sin(90◦ − θ).
The line has positive slope and passes through the origin, so it passes through quadrants
I and III. The condition x ≤ 0 implies that we are in quadrant III. Our reference
angle θ therefore has a tangent of 3, so according to the unit circle, θ = 60◦ , hence
1
θ = 180◦ + θ = 240◦ . sin(90◦ − θ) = cos(θ) = cos(240◦ ) = − 2 . 1 ...
