Homework for period 7: DO the 8 problems. They are listed a couple posts below this one.

Period 1,3: If you didnt finish, finish the 12 systems worksheet from class.  Even if you do not do it, bring it back.  Its worth double, and we are not taking tests on this so its your only grade for systems

Period 2: Similar figures worksheet.  Similar figures have the same ratio of height to width as each other.  Set up proportions to find what the missing side is.

Homework for periods 1,3,5: Check the post down below for the systems you are supposed to solve.

Period 2,4: Solve the proportions for n.  Page E-9

Algebra Homework Systems 1/8/13

1) 2x + 5y = 17
   6x - 5y = -9

2) 7x + 2y = 10
  -7x + y = -16

3) 2x - 3y = 61
2x + y = -7

4) 8x + 11y = 20
5x - 11y = -59

5) y = 2x
y = x-1

6) (try dividing)
3x - 10y = -25
4x + 40y = 20

7) 2x + 4y = 8
5x + y = -7

8) 7x + 15y = 32
x - 3y = 20

Homework for periods 2,4: Finish the graphing guy.  It should look like a guy with his striped tie blowing away.

Period 1,3,5,7: Finish 1-6 on the word problems.  If you need some help setting up the equations, look below to see the basic equations used to set up 4-6.

d = dollar bills
f = five dollar bills

d + 5f = 124
d + 8 = f

n = number of nickels
q = number of quarters

5n + 25q = 260
n + q = 16

T = twenty cent stamps
F = twenty five cent stamps

T + F = 32
20T + 25F = 740

See someone else explain the examples

    Trolls, Tolls, and Systems of Equations: A troll forces us to use algebra to figure out the make-up of his currency.  We end up setting up a system of equations
