DIRECTIONS: Solve each problem and choose the best answer from the choices given.
Detailed solution should be shown and all final answers should be encircled. Write out
your solution as shown below:

Sample Item:

1. What is the x-intercept of the line passing through A(1,4) and B(4,1)?
a. 4
b. 4.5
c. 5
d. 6

1. C
Solution:
A (1, 4) x 1 = 1 y1 = 4
B(4, 1) x 2 = 4 y 2 = 1

## using two point form :

y - y1 y 2 - y1

x - x1 x 2 - x1
y - y1 y 2 - y1 x - x1
x 2 - x1
y - 4 1- 4 x -1
4 -1
