- Use the sliders and graph the equations to find and write the solution(s) of the following linear systems:

a.) y = 2x + 4 and y = 5x - 2

b.) y = 4 and y = -6x - 2

c.) y = 7x + 4 and y = x - 2

d.) y = 2x - 4 and y = 2x + 8

e.) y = -.2x + 1 and 5x + 6 - What do you notice about the answer for question 1d? Is there a solution? If not, explain why there is no solution.
- What do you notice about the graphs in question 1e? Look at them and try to find a geometric relationship.
- Put the slopes in question 1e in fraction form. Find a relationship between the slopes. Explain why these slopes would produce such a system.
