### Eureka Math Grade 8 Module 4 Lesson 27 Exercise Answer Key

Exercises

Determine the nature of the solution to each system of linear equations.

Exercise 1.

3x + 4y = 5

y = – \(\frac{3}{4}\) x + 1

Answer:

The slopes of these two distinct equations are the same, which means the graphs of these two equations are parallel lines. Therefore, this system will have no solution.

Exercise 2.

7x + 2y = – 4

x – y = 5

Answer:

The slopes of these two equations are different. That means the graphs of these two equations are distinct nonparallel lines and will intersect at one point. Therefore, this system has one solution.

Exercise 3.

9x + 6y = 3

3x + 2y = 1

Answer:

The lines defined by the graph of this system of equations are the same line because they have the same slope and the same y – intercept point.

Determine the nature of the solution to each system of linear equations. If the system has a solution, find it algebraically, and then verify that your solution is correct by graphing.

Exercise 4.

3x + 3y = – 21

x + y = – 7

Answer:

These equations define the same line. Therefore, this system will have infinitely many solutions.

Exercise 5.

y = \(\frac{3}{2}\) x – 1

3y = x + 2

Answer:

The slopes of these two equations are unique. That means they graph as distinct lines and will intersect at one point. Therefore, this system has one solution.

3(y = \(\frac{3}{2}\) x – 1)

3y = \(\frac{9}{2}\) x – 3

x + 2 = \(\frac{9}{2}\) x – 3

2 = \(\frac{7}{2}\) x – 3

5 = \(\frac{7}{2}\) x

\(\frac{10}{7}\) = x

y = \(\frac{3}{2}\) (\(\frac{10}{7}\)) – 1

y = \(\frac{15}{7}\) – 1

y = \(\frac{8}{7}\)

The solution is (\(\frac{10}{7}\), \(\frac{8}{7}\)).

Exercise 6.

x = 12y – 4

x = 9y + 7

Answer:

The slopes of these two equations are unique. That means they graph as distinct lines and will intersect at one point. Therefore, this system has one solution.

12y – 4 = 9y + 7

3y – 4 = 7

3y = 11

y = \(\frac{11}{3}\)

x = 9(\(\frac{11}{3}\)) + 7

x = 33 + 7

x = 40

The solution is (40, \(\frac{11}{3}\)).

Question 1.

y = \(\frac{3}{7}\) x – 8

3x – 7y = 1

Answer:

The slopes of these two equations are the same, and the y – intercept points are different, which means they graph as parallel lines. Therefore, this system will have no solution.

Question 2.

2x – 5 = y

– 3x – 1 = 2y

Answer:

(2x – 5 = y)^{2}

4x – 10 = 2y

4x – 10 = 2y

– 3x – 1 = 2y

4x – 10 = – 3x – 1

7x – 10 = – 1

7x = 9

x = \(\frac{9}{7}\)

y = 2(\(\frac{9}{7}\)) – 5

y = \(\frac{18}{7}\) – 5

y = – \(\frac{17}{7}\)

The solution is (\(\frac{9}{7}\), – \(\frac{17}{7}\)).

Question 3.

x = 6y + 7

x = 10y + 2

Answer:

6y + 7 = 10y + 2

7 = 4y + 2

5 = 4y

\(\frac{5}{4}\) = y

x = 6(\(\frac{5}{4}\)) + 7

x = \(\frac{15}{2}\) + 7

x = \(\frac{29}{2}\)

The solution is (\(\frac{29}{2}\), \(\frac{5}{4}\)).

Question 4.

5y = \(\frac{15}{4}\) x + 25

y = \(\frac{3}{4}\) x + 5

Answer:

These equations define the same line. Therefore, this system will have infinitely many solutions.

Question 5.

x + 9 = y

x = 4y – 6

Answer:

4y – 6 + 9 = y

4y + 3 = y

3 = – 3y

– 1 = y x + 9 = – 1

x = – 10

The solution is ( – 10, – 1).

Question 6.

3y = 5x – 15

3y = 13x – 2

Answer:

5x – 15 = 13x – 2

– 15 = 8x – 2

– 13 = 8x

– \(\frac{13}{8}\) = x

3y = 5( – \(\frac{13}{8}\)) – 15

3y = – \(\frac{65}{8}\) – 15

3y = – \(\frac{185}{8}\)

y = – \(\frac{185}{24}\)

The solution is ( – \(\frac{13}{8}\), – \(\frac{185}{24}\)).

5x – 2y = 6

– 10x + 4y = – 14

Answer:

The slopes of these two equations are the same, and the y – intercept points are different, which means they graph as parallel lines. Therefore, this system will have no solution.

Question 9.

y = \(\frac{3}{2}\) x – 6

2y = 7 – 4x

Answer:

2(y = \(\frac{3}{2}\) x – 6)

2y = 3x – 12

2y = 3x – 12

2y = 7 – 4x

3x – 12 = 7 – 4x

7x – 12 = 7

7x = 19

x = \(\frac{19}{7}\)

y = \(\frac{3}{2}\) (\(\frac{19}{7}\)) – 6

y = \(\frac{57}{14}\) – 6

y = – \(\frac{27}{14}\)

The solution is (\(\frac{19}{7}\), – \(\frac{27}{14}\)).

Question 10.

7x – 10 = y

y = 5x + 12

Answer:

7x – 10 = 5x + 12

2x – 10 = 12

2x = 22

x = 11

y = 5(11) + 12

y = 55 + 12

y = 67

The solution is (11, 67).

Question 11.

Determine the nature of the solution to each system of linear equations. If the system has a solution, then find it without graphing.

Question 1.

y = \(\frac{1}{2}\) x + \(\frac{5}{2}\)

x – 2y = 7

Answer:

The slopes of these two equations are the same, and the y – intercept points are different, which means they graph as parallel lines. Therefore, this system will have no solution.

Question 2.

y = \(\frac{2}{3}\) x + 4

2y + \(\frac{1}{2}\) x = 2

Answer:

The slopes of these two equations are unique. That means they graph as distinct lines and will intersect at one point. Therefore, this system has one solution.

2(\(\frac{2}{3}\) x + 4) + \(\frac{1}{2}\) x = 2

\(\frac{4}{3}\) x + 8 + \(\frac{1}{2}\) x = 2

\(\frac{11}{6}\) x + 8 = 2

\(\frac{11}{6}\) x = – 6

x = – \(\frac{36}{11}\)
