The key word in the question is 'estimate'.

This means without doing an accurate calculation, how can I get an approximate answer quickly?

The stereo costs about $200 (very close to $198, just easier.)

5.25% can be considered as 5% to make it easier to work with.

5% of $100 is $5, so 5% of $200 is $10

An estimate for the tax is $10

Cost of stereo # = $198

Sales tax =5.25%

Tax amount $=198\cdot \left(\frac{5.25}{100}\right)$

Total sales tax amount =$10.40

Find the slope that is perpendicular to the line y=2x+11

asked 2022-02-22

How do I craft a linear equation so that it is in the form of $ax+bx+c=0$ where ${a}^{2}+{b}^{2}=1$ if I have two points? I know how to get it into the form ax+bx+c=0 but I can't figure out the algorithm for satisfying the second condition.

In my understanding, a matrix is all of those:

1. a transformation in a vector space,

2. a function form some domain to some range,

3. a shorthand way of describing a system of linear equations.

By the last point, a real-valued matrix can have any conceivable real numbers as elements. Is that true or does there exist a table of numbers, which cannot be interpreted as a matrix in the linear algebra sense?

From a text book:

"The general form of a linear equation in two variables is$ax+by+c=0$ or, $ax+by=c$ where a,b,c are real numbers such that $a\ne 0,b\ne 0$ and x,y are variables.
(we often denote the condition a and b are not both zero by ${a}^{2}+{b}^{2}\ne 0$ .)"

I don’t understand this last condition.

How can we say that${a}^{2}+{b}^{2}\ne 0$ represents the condition that a and b are not both zero.

Let a=0,b=1, then also this condition fulfills.
