For the final project please do all of the following steps:

Describe another setting in which a systems of equations approach would be useful.

Present data for an application of your choice. (This topic was submitted in your Week 7 Proposal.) Be sure to cite any sources if you use outside references for ideas or data.

Write a linear equation of the form y1 = mx + b for your first set of data. Graph this equation on the xy-plane and label it as y1. You may use Excel to graph, search online for graph paper options to use, or use the ‘draw’ tools in Word to plot your lines (Graphsketch.com is resource which you may find helpful when constructing your graph.) Also, be sure to include a title on the graph and labels on the x- and y-axes.

Write a linear equation of the form y2 = mx + b for the other equation in your system. Graph this equation on the same graph. You will now have two lines on the same graph. These should intersect.

Find the point of intersection for y1 and y2 algebraically (by setting the equations equal to each other and solving). Show your work and also plot this point on the graph.

Analyze the data and explain what the intersection means, in terms of the problem. Is there a ‘best’ solution to your problem? If so, under what conditions?

Conclude your project with a short summary of what you learned.

* THIS IS MY TOPIC* you can compare them. LIKE PUTTING CARPET IN A ROOM OR HARDWOOD FLOORING Don’t make your project too big to manage. Maybe look at two flooring companies and putting carpet or hardwood in a room as part of the construction of a home?

* PLEASE BE SURE TO MAKE GRAPHS AND Y AXIS AND ELABORATE ON THE TOPIC WITHOUT MAKING IT TO BROAD.

BELOW I HAVE SENT YOU AN ATTACHMENT OF HOW THE FINAL PROJECT HAS TO LOOK. THIS IS A COPY OF A REAL PROJECT FOR THIS CLASS SO IF YOU COULD EMULATE THIS WHILE RECREATING IT TO MY TOPIC WHICH WOULD BE COMPARING HARDWOOD FLOORING TO CARPET IN A NEWLY RENAVATED HOME. THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

ANOTHER THING IS I NEED THIS PROJECT TO BE DONE BEFORE 8:00 AM ON JULY 8TH THANK YOU
