# A line with a slope of -2 passes through the point (4, 7). Write an equation for this line in point-slope form.

The equation in point-slope is .

Step-by-step explanation:

Point-slope is a specific form of linear equations in two variables:

When an equation is written in this form, m gives the slope of the line and (a, b) is a point the line passes through.

We want to find the equation of the line that passes through (4, 7) and whose slope is -2. Well, we simply plug m = -2, a = 4, and b = 7 into point-slope form.

If a new truck costs \$43,750 and it depreciates 18% per year, what will the truck be worth in 5 years? 1 SEE ANSWER

if it depreciates by 18%, then as each year passes, its worth is reduced to 82% of its value
So, after 5 years, it is worth 43750

Solve the equation. Check the solution. 8 - 6x - 5 - 4x = 5 Type an integer or a simplified fraction

x = -0.2

Step-by-step explanation:

In this problem, an equation is given as follows :

8- 6x - 5 - 4x = 5

We need to solve the above equation

Taking like terms together:

-6x-4x=5+5-8

-10x=2

x = -0.2

So, the value of x is -0.2.

Ashley, Milan, and Carlos sent a total of 131 text messages over their cell phones during the weekend. Carlos sent 7 times as many messages as Ashley. Ashley sent 4 more messages than Milan. How many messages did they each send?

Ashley= 15

Milan= 11

Carlos= 105

Step-by-step explanation:

Let, A, M and C denotes Ashley, Milan and Carlos respectively.

A+M+C= 131 (according to the question)

Here,

C= 7A

A= M+ 4

So, M= A - 4

Now,

A+M+C = 131

or, A+ A-4+ 7A = 131 (putting the values)

or, 9A - 4 = 131 (adding like terms i.e. A + A + 7A)

or, 9A = 131 + 4

or, 9A = 135

or, A = 135 / 9

So, A = 15

C= 7A = 7×15= 105

M= A-4 = 15 - 4 = 11

Which shows one way to determine the factors of x3 + 5x2 – 6x – 30 by grouping?x(x2 – 5) + 6(x2 – 5)
x(x2 + 5) – 6(x2 + 5)
x2(x – 5) + 6(x – 5)
x2(x + 5) – 6(x + 5)

The answer choice which shows how to determine the factors of the expression by grouping is; Choice D; x²(x + 5) – 6(x + 5)

### Factorisation by grouping

The given expression is; x³ + 5x² – 6x – 30.

The expression is tetranomial, hence, by grouping into 2 terms each; we have;

• (x³+ 5x²) (– 6x – 30)

Ultimately, upon factorisation of each subunit of the expression, we have;

• x²(x+5) -6(x+5)

D

Step-by-step explanation:

group them first :

( x3+5x2) and ( -6x-30)

then simply by gcf ( greatest common factor) :

x2(x+5) and -6(x+5)

and just add them together:

x2(x+5)-6(x+5)

bonus :

it can be written as (x2-6)(x+5)
