# The equation of line j is y=2x-8. line k includes the point (-5,-9) and is parallel to line j. what is the equation of like k? Write the equation in slope-intercept form. Write the numbers in the equation as proper fractions, improper fractions. or integers

y = 2x + 1.

Step-by-step explanation:

The line j is y = 2x - 8. Comparing this with the standard form of a straight line y = mx + c we see that m (the slope) = 2.

The line k is parallel to j so it has the same slope.

Using the point-slope for of a straight line we can ow find the equation of the line k.

y - y1 = m(x - x1)   where m = slope and (x1, y1) is a point on the line, so

y -  (-9) = 2(x - (-5))

y + 9 = 2(x + 5)

y + 9 = 2x + 10

y = 2x + 1   (answer).

A number has an absolute value equal to 20 what is the number ?

20 and - 20 has an absolute value of 20

Step-by-step explanation:

Let's recall that the term "Absolute value" describes the distance of a number on the number line from 0 without considering which direction from zero the number lies. The absolute value of a number is always positive and never negative.

Upon saying that, in this case, 20 and - 20 has an absolute value of 20.

A dealer paid \$10,000 for a boat at an auction. At the dealership, a salesperson sold the boat for 30% more than the auction price. The salesperson received a commission of 25% of the difference between the auction price and the dealership price. What was the salesperson’s commission?

Given situation:
=> A deadler paid \$10 000 for a boat at an auction.
=> At the dealership, a sales person sold the boat for 30% more than the auction price
=> 10 000 dollars + 30%
=> Then the salesperson received a commission of 25% of the difference between the auction price and the dealership price
=> 10 000 + 25%
Let’s find the solution
=> 10 000 x .30 = 3000
=> 10 000 + 3 000 = 13 000, he sell it for this price
=> then he received a commission
=> 13 000 – 3 000 = 10 000
=> 10 000 x .25
=> 2500 , his commission

The difference between the auction price and dealership price is:

0.30*10000 = \$3,000

25% of \$3,000 is 0.25*3,000 = \$750

The salesperson's commission was \$750.

Keri walks her dog every morning the length of the walk is 0.55 kilometer on each weekday.on each weekend day the walk is 1.4 times as long as a walk on a weekday how many kilometers does keri walk in one week?

.55km x 5 days = 2.75km

.55km x 1.4 = .77km x 2 = 1.54km

2.75km + 1.54km = 4.29km in one week.

0.55 * 1.4= 0.77   0.77*2=1.54    0.55*5=2.75  add 1.54+2.75=4.29 kilometers per week
