Correct statements:

Multiply 12 by 8, then divide by 3

This is true because when dividing by a fraction, you can multiply by the reciprocal (flipped, e.g. 8/3 is the reciprocal 3/8)

Alot of the time insurence companies get discounts with whomever is fixing the item or person. For example- for medical insurence alot of the major insurence companies have agreements with drug companies in order to lower the payment for the company.

Another thing is they pick people who are unlikly to call and disput a claim or have problems in general.

Hello!

To the value of b, or the y-intercept, we need to substitute an ordered pair/point into the given equation.

Since we are given two points, we can use those two points to find two different equations.

Remember that ordered pairs are written as (x, y).

A(-2, 4)

y = -3x + b

4 = -3(-2) + b

4 = 6 + b (subtract 6 from both sides)

-2 = b

A) Therefore, the equation of the first ordered pair is y = -3x - 2.

B(5, 2)

2 = -3(5) + b

2 = -15 + b (add 15 to both sides)

17 = b

B) The equation of the second ordered pair is y= -3x + 17.

<u>Final answers</u>:

- A) y = -3x - 2
- B) y = -3x + 17
