13.) Which inequality has (-2, -8) as a solution?

(a) 3x + 6y _> - 51

(b) 6x - 2y _> 7

(c) -2x + 3y _< -23

(d) None of these

14.) Determine which ordered pair (x, y) is a solution of

2x - 3y _> -12.

(a) (-2, 6)

(b) (3, 7)

(c) (4, 6)

(d) (-4, 3)

15.) Which of the given ordered pairs are not solutions to the system of inequalities?

Relevance

13) D none of them

14) C 2(4)-3(6)> -12

8-18>-12

-10 > -12

15) (-4,3) ; (1,-4); (-3,-5)

16) NO; 3(5) +2 not <16

15+2 not < 16

17 not < 16

• 13. Plug in the points to see if it works.

a) 3(-2) + 6(-8) = -6-48=-54 which is not >= -51

b) 6(-2)-2(-8)=-12+16=4 which is not >= 7

c) -2(-2)+3(-8)=4-24=-20 which is not <= -23

14. Again plug in the point.

a) 2(-2) - 3(6) = -4-18=-22 which is not >= -12

b) 2(3) - 3(7) = 6-21=-15 which is not >= -12

c) 2(4) - 3(6) = 8-18=-10 which is >= -12 This is the answer.

d) 2(-4) - 3(3) = -8-9=-17 which is not >= -12

15a) (2,3) ----> Yes Yes (This works)

b) (-4,3) ----> No (=) Yes (Not a solution)

c) (2,5) ----> Yes Yes (This works)

d) (1,-4) ----> No No (Not a solution)

e) (-3,-5) ----> No No (Not a solution)

16) No, since 3(5)+2=17 which is not <=16
