MAT-121: COLLEGE ALGEBRA Written Assignment 2 2.5 points each SECTION 2.1 Algebraic For the following exercise, solve the equation for y in terms of x 1. 8 x + 3 y = 11 3 y =− 8 x + 11 y = 8 x + 11 3 For the following exercise, find the distance between the two points. Simplify your answer, and write the exact answer in simplest radical form for an irrational answer. 2. ( 0, 5 ) and ( 7,4 ) ( 7 0 ) 2 + [ 4 −(− 5 ) ] 2 ( 7 ) 2 + ( 9 ) 2 49 + 81 130 Graphical For exercises 3 and 4 , plot the three points on the given coordinate plane. State whether the three points you plotted appear to be collinear (on the same line). 3. ( 10,4 ) , ( 4, 2 ) , ( 3,2 ) (Use a scale of 2 for each axis.) The three points are noncollinear. .
