Solving linear equations

and inequations

A linear equation is one that involves a variable raised to the power of 1 only. Recall that x

1

is the same

as x, so a linear equation involving x would contain only xs, and not x

, x

, x

and so on. For

example, y = 7x 3, ax + by = c and

8

3

x + 1 = 9 are all linear equations.

Note that y =

1

x

is not a linear equation, as the

1

x

is really x

1

.

To isolate a particular variable known as making x (or whatever the variable is) the subject we

focus on the variable by undoing other terms and operations. Remember to do the same operation to both

sides of an equation, in the reverse order to that originally used to make up the equation.

Though the focus of this chapter is linear equations, some other types of equations will be included

for skills practice.

When there is only one variable involved in an equation, we may attempt to solve and fnd a numerical

value by rearranging to make the variable the subject.

There is only one solution to a linear equation. For example, the equation 3x + 2 = 8 has the solution

x = 2. The solution to a linear equation can be represented as a single point on a number line. If the

equals sign is replaced with an inequality sign, the solution is a portion of a number line. These

expressions are referred to as linear inequations (sometimes called inequalities).

the isolated variable. The following worked example illustrates some practical applications.

These lines have identical

gradients (equal m values).

To sketch a graph from a linear equation expressed in general form, follow these steps.

Step 1 Plot the y-intercept on a set of axes.

Step 2 Find and plot a second point on the line. Do this by substituting any value of x into the equation

and fnding the corresponding y-value.

Step 3 Join the two points.

Alternatively, you can use a CAS calculator or other graphing technology.

To fnd the equation of a line given the gradient and y-intercept, simply substitute the values of m and

c into y = mx + c.

Sketching linear graphs using intercepts

To draw a graph, only two points are needed. A line may then be drawn

through the two points, and will include all other points that follow the

given rule. The two points can be chosen at random; however, it is often

easier to sketch a graph using the points where the graph crosses the axes.

These points are called x- and y-intercepts. The x-intercept occurs when

y = 0, and the y-intercept occurs when x = 0.

The graphs of some equations do not have two intercepts, as they pass through the origin (0, 0). Such

equations are of the form y = k x or a x + by = 0.

To sketch graphs of such equations, we use (0, 0) and any other point, for example the point where

x = 1. (We could choose any other non-zero value.)

Simultaneous equations

Simultaneous equations are groups of equations containing

two or more variables. In this section, we look at pairs of linear

equations involving the variables x and y. Each equation, as

we have learned in previous sections, may be represented by a

linear graph that is true for many x- and y-values. If the graphs

intersect (when wouldnt they?), the values of x and y at the

intersection are those that make both equations true.

Graphical solution

Finding the point of intersection of two straight lines can be done graphically; however, the accuracy of

the graph determines the accuracy of the solution.

Consequently, using a calculator to solve the equations graphically is more reliable than reading the

solution from a hand-drawn graph.

WORKED EXAMPLE 13

3 Write the answer. Solving y =

3x + 5 and 4x 7y + 8 = 0

simultaneously produces the solution

Algebraic solution

It is possible to solve simultaneous equations without graphs, that is, algebraically. The methods of

substitution and elimination taught in earlier years may be used.

Linear modelling

Many real-life applications, such as fees charged for services, cost of manufacturing or running a

business, patterns in nature, sporting records and so on, follow linear relation ships. These relationships

may take the form of a linear equation; for example, F = 50 + 30t may be used by a tradesperson to

calculate her fee (in dollars) for t hours of work.

Here, F is the fee in dollars, and t the time in hours. The 50 represents an initial fee for simply turning

up, while the 30t is the amount charged for the time spent on the job.

For example, if t = 2 hours, 30t = 60, so the total charge for the work would be $(50 + 60) = $110.

Equations like F = 50 + 30t are sometimes referred to as linear models, a common form of which is:

Total cost = Fixed cost + Cost per unit Number of units.

This is, of course, equivalent to y = mx + c. y = c + mx.

WORKED EXAMPLE 21

A generator company charges a $200 delivery fee, and a rental fee of $1500 per day.

a Find an expression relating total charge to the number of days for which the generator is hired.

b Sketch a graph of the relationship.

c What would be the charge for 4 weeks of rental?

THINK WRITE/DRAW

a 1 Defne convenient variables. a Let T = total charge (in dollars) and

n = number of days the generator is hired.

2 The fxed cost is $200, and the cost per unit is

$1500. (c = 200, m = 1500)

T = 200 + 1500n

b 1

Find the vertical intercept (when n = 0). b If n = 0, T = 200

WORKED EXAMPLE 22

Rent-a-Chef provides food cooked and served by a qualifed chef at parties.

The company charges $120 as a booking fee, and an additional $30 per hour.

Another company, Greased Lightning, provides fast food served by two

students at a cost of $65 per hour, with no booking fee. Under what conditions

would it be cheapest to hire Greased Lightning?

THINK WRITE

1 Defne convenient variables. Let C = cost (total) in dollars and t = time in hours.

2 Write an equation for the cost of hiring both

organisations.

Rent-a-Chef C = 120 + 30t [1]

Greased Lightning C = 65t [2]

3 Use simultaneous equations to fnd when the

cost is the same with each group.

Put [1] = [2]

120 + 30t = 65t

120 = 35t

t

120

35

=

= 3.4 hours

4 At 3.4 hours, the cost is the same. Since Greased

Lightning has the higher per hour cost, after

3.4hours, they would be more expensive.

It is cheaper to hire Greased Lightning for food

preparation and service of less than 3.4 hours

(3 hours and 26 minutes) duration.

Notes

1. 0.4 hours = 0.4 60 minutes = 24 minutes.

2. An alternative approach would be to use a CAS calculator and fnd the point at which the

two graphs crossed.

Sketching linear

functions

The general equation for a straight line of gradient m and y-intercept c is y = mx + c.

Lines with the same gradient (m) are parallel.

To fnd the y-intercept, let x = 0 and fnd y.

To fnd the x-intercept, let y = 0 and fnd x.

If y = 0 when x = 0, substitute another x-value (for example x = 1) to fnd another point

on the line.

Join two points and/or intercepts with a straight line.

Simultaneous

equations

Simultaneous equations can be solved with a calculator.

For equations of the form y = ax + b, y = cx + d, consider using substitution.

For equations of the form ax + by = c, dx + ey = f, consider using elimination.

1 The graph at right is a rough sketch of three points on a section of

sheet metal that are to be drilled by a programmed robotic drilling

arm. Any deviation from a straight path, no matter how slight,

means the arm must be programmed for more than one direction.

The coordinates marked are correct. Will the robotic arm be able to

move in one direction only to drill all three holes?

2 Points A, B and C have the coordinates (1, 6), (0, 0) and (

2, 2).

Find the coordinates for a point D so that the four points form a

parallelogram.

3 Consider the points (

4,

1) and (0,

7).

a Find the coordinates of the midpoints of each side of the quadrilateral formed by the points.

b Show that the shape formed by the midpoints is a parallelogram.

c Repeat parts a and b for a different set of starting points.

d What can you conjecture based on your answers?

4 The cost of a parachuting course consists of a charge of $250, which covers equipment hire and tuition,

and a further expense of $55 per jump.

a Express the total cost, C, as a function of j, the number of jumps.

b How many jumps could a person doing the course afford if she was prepared to spend up to

$1000?

f Write an equation that describes the relationship between the

force applied and the length of the second spring.

The gradients of graphs such as the ones you have drawn give an

indication of the stiffness of a spring. The greater the gradient, the

harder it is to stretch the spring. The lower the gradient, the easier

it is to stretch the spring.

g Comment on the stiffness of the two springs investigated by the

students.

h Is it likely that these two springs will ever be the same length at

a given force; that is, is it likely that the intersection of the two

graphs could ever really happen? Explain your answer.
