### Example Question #101 : Algebra

Calculate the slope of the line.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

In order to solve for the slope, we need to recall how to find the slope of a line. , where are points on the line.

So we will pick , and .

### Example Question #47 : New Sat Math Calculator

What equation best represents the following table?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The first step is to find the common ratio amongst the data.

We can that the common ratio is .

Now we need to set up an equation that will give an answer for any time.

We can set up an exponential decay model, the general equation is,

, where is the starting amount, is the common ratio and is time.

After plugging our numbers in, we get

### Example Question #141 : Gre Quantitative Reasoning

Sally sells custom picture frames. Her monthly fixed costs are $350. It costs $10 to make each frame. Sally sells her picture frames for $35 each.

How many picture frames must Sally sell in order to break even?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The break-even point is where the costs equal the revenues.

Let = # of frames sold

Costs:

Revenues:

Thus,

So 14 picture frames must be sold each month to break-even.

### Example Question #104 : Algebra

8 is 3 greater than the square root of an unknown number. What is the unknown number?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

In order to solve for the unknown number, you must write an equation and solve for a variable. 8 is 3 greater than the square root of an unknown number translates to

To solve for a you must subtract 3 from both sides, and then square both sides.

As you can see,

and

So, the value of the unknown number is 25.

### Example Question #3 : How To Find The Solution To A Rational Equation With Lcd

Solve for and using elimination:

**Possible Answers:**

and

and

and

and

and

**Correct answer:**

and

When using elimination, you need two factors to cancel out when the two equations are added together. We can get the in the first equation to cancel out with the in the second equation by multiplying everything in the second equation by :

Now our two equations look like this:

The can cancel with the , giving us:

These equations, when summed, give us:

Once we know the value for , we can just plug it into one of our original equations to solve for the value of :
