Math 149 Lab 1 - Exercises Name: < your name goes here > Section: < your section number goes here > Exercises ü Exercise 1: Solving a System of Equations Given the system of equations: y = 2 x + 2 y = 2 x 3 + 7 x 2 - x - 2 Find the three solutions via the following four methods, and compare your results: è Graphically, by plotting the two expressions and estimating the points of intersection. è Through the use of the Solve command. è Through the use of the Reduce command. è Through the use of the NSolve command. Useful commands for this exercise: è Plot[{function1name[variable],function2name[variable]},{variable,leftborder,righ tborder},PlotRange->{lowborder,highborder}, PlotLabel->Title] plots two functions and explicitly gives the range of coordinates over which to plot. It also allows you to specify a title. è Solve[{expression1==expression2, expression3==expression4},{variable1,variable2}] solves symbolically for the situation where expression1 is equal to expression2 and expression3 is equal to expression4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
