1. Find the point of intersection for the following two straight lines:
a) f 1 ( x ) 2 x 5 , f 2 ( x) 10 x 7
b) the first line is parallel to the graph of f ( x) 2 x 5 and passes through the point
(1; 0), while the second line is perpendicular to the graph of f ( x) 10 x 7 and has
the y-intercept equal to 4
c) the first line is perpendicular to the graph of f ( x) 2 x 5 and passes through the
point (1; 0), while the second line is parallel to the graph of f ( x) 10 x 7 and has
the y-intercept equal to 4
d) the first line passes through the points (1; 0) and (0; 10), while the second line passes
through the points (0; 2) and (8; 10).
