Official Solution:

Which of the following points is not on the line \(y = 5x + 3\)?

A. \((\frac{1}{2}, \frac{11}{2})\)
B. \((\frac{1}{3}, \frac{14}{3})\)
C. \((\sqrt{8}, 3 + 10*\sqrt{2})\)
D. \((\sqrt{4}, 13)\)
E. \((\sqrt{2}, \frac{31}{3})\)

For \((\sqrt{2}, \frac{31}{3})\), the left hand side (LHS) becomes \(LHS=y=\frac{31}{3}=\text{rational}\) and \(RHS=5x + 3=5\sqrt{2}+3=\text{irrational}\) and since \(\text{rational} \ne \text{irrational}\), then line \(y=5x+3\) does not pass through point \((\sqrt{2}, \frac{31}{3})\).

Answer: E

Hi,
D does fit in..
D. \((\sqrt{4},13)\)
y=5x+3..
substitute x= \(\sqrt{4}\) = 2 and y as 13..
13=5*2+3..
13=13..
OK

I think this is a high-quality question and the explanation isn't clear enough, please elaborate. Hi, I have the following doubts please clarify:
1. In D can't square root of 4 be + or -2?
.
2. I did not understand your explanation for E. Square root if 2 is approximately 1.41. so LHS is approximately 10.33. RHS = 5 * 1.41 + 3 which is approximately 10.08. Does this negligible difference be attributed to the reason that it does not lie on the line?

First one is always X. In this case X= \sqrt{8}
