1. Find the area of a triangle formed by the (x,y)-axes and the line with equation 4x +3y - 12 = 0.
^ With this one I started out by drawing a graph and using slope-intercept form to create a right triangle from the line that was drawn. I got a base of 3 and a height of 4, which would be 12/2 = 6. This is probably super wrong but just throwing it out there...
2. Y varies jointly as x and z and inversely as the product of w and p. If y = 3/28 when x = 3, z = 10, w = 7, and p = 8, find y when x = 5, z = 12, w = 9, and p =10.
Any help is appreciated, THANKS!
