Problem: Ten points lie on a circle. How many inscribed quadrilaterals can be drawn having these points as vertices? My Thoughts: I'm trying to make a connection between this problem and one I already know: "Seven points lie on a circle, as shown in the figure. How many inscribed triangles can be dr...

y = mx + b is slope-intercept form, not point-slope form. The point-slope formula is y - y 1 = m(x - x 1 ), where you will most likely be given a point (x 1 , y 1 ) and a slope (m) that you can then substitute into the formula by replacing those variables with the numbers you were given in the probl...

You are also able to reason through this by understanding the properties of equality and the properties of real numbers. y^2 = 2 + 5x Let's start from this step since this is where you got confused. The commutative property of addition says that you can add terms in any order, i.e. switch the order ...
