 # Find the equation for the line that passes through A's hypotenuse plz show work The answer is:  " 1 "  _________________________________________               " y = -2x + 1 " . _________________________________________ Explanation: _________________________________________ Look at the hypotenuse for "ΔA" and note the coordinates of where the hypotenuse crosses the "y-axis". The coordinates are:  " (0, 1) " ;  that is:  " x = 0 ;  y = 1 " . So, the problem /question is:  " y = -2x + [?] " ;  → Plug in " 1 " for "y" ;  as follows: →  " 1 = -2x + [?] " ;  →  We know that "x = 0";   → when "x = 0" ;    →  " -2x " = " (-2 * 0) = 0 ;   So,  1 = 0 + [?] ;  The answer is " 1 " ; since:  " { 0 + 1 = 1 .} . Or, with a more detailed explanation: _______________________________________________________   →  1  =  0  +  [?]  ; Subtract "0" from EACH SIDE of the equation;     →  1  − 0 =  0  +  [?]  − 0 ;  to get:  →  1 = [?] ;  ______________________________________________________ The answer is:  " 1 " . ______________________________________________________
