A. (20, 60)
B. (30, 45)
C. (20, 40)
D. (40, 20)
E. (50, 50) So the best way to solve this question would be to draw it on the co ordinate plan, said that You can find the points for y = 2x + 100, as x = 50, y =0 & x =0, y =100 When you join these points with the x and y axis you will get a triangle.(You can mark the points with a 10 pt interval) A,D and E can be eliminated without second thought. Only C will be visible inside the triangle

Find the intersection between the line and respective coordinate axis The triangle formed has the coordinates \((0,0) , (50,0)\) and \((0,100)\) A and D are not in the first quadrant \(E (50,50)\) clearly lies outside the triangle For \(B(30, 45)\) and \(C(20, 40)\) \(y = 2x + 100\) When we substitute x=30 in the line , we get y=40 [Hence B is above the line, outside the triangle] When we substitute x=20 in the line , we get y=60 [Hence C is below the line, inside the triangle] IMO C

the line (y = 2x + 100) intersect with xaxis at (50,0) , and with yaxis at (0,100) A and D can be eliminated as they don't lie in the first quadrant E is eliminated as (50,50) it is above the (50,0) point of xintercept by checking B (30,45): if x=30, then y should be <40, but y = 45 in option B, so eliminated by checking C (20,40): if x=20, then y should be <60, and y= 40 in option C, which is under the line so C.

Can someone be so kind and graph the slope y = 2x + 100?
Kind regards!

A. (20, 60)
B. (30, 45)
C. (20, 40)
D. (40, 20)
E. (50, 50) The three points of the triangle are (0,0) (50,0) and (0,100). Clearly, Point A and D have negative x coordinate and are out of contention. Point A and E can be eliminated by substituting x coordinate and checking whether "derived y coordinate" is less than or equal to "given y coordinate". For example, to check option, when we substitute x=50 we should get y equal to 0 but the given value of y is 50 hence E is out as 50 ("given y coordinate") > 0 ("derived y coordinate"). Similarly, Option B can also be eliminated by following this method. Option C is the correct answer.

[quote="jfranciscocuencag" how do we know that the line is going to be drown in that quadrant?[/quote] we are talking about infinite straight lines, so: In general, most line pass through 3 quadrants (in our case, our line pass through Q1,Q2,Q4) ... but lines passing through the origin, cut through 2 quadrants only. after rearranging the equation so that "y" (with positive sign) is in one side and anything else is in the other side, see the sign of "x", if it is (+ve), so it pass through Q1 and Q3 for sure. if it is (ve), so it pass through Q2 and Q4 for sure. (like in our question) In our question, the line is making a triangle with xaxis and y axis. the triangle has 3 points: (0,0), (x,0) and (0,y) to know (x,0) > let y = 0 in the equation , and x will be 50, making (50,0) to know (0,y) > let x = 0 in the equation , and y will be 100, making (0,100) draw it roughly, and you will find that the triangle is in Q1 I hope this suffices your question.
