### Subject: Pre-Algebra

Graph the following slope-intercept (y=mx+b) equation on a linear plan and explain each of the key features. y=3x-4

Identify each piece of important information. y-intercept=-4 slope=3 (Or, rise 3, run 1) We would then walk through how to graph this line on a linear plane using the above information. Key features explanation: 4=Where the graph intercepts (hits) the y-intercept. 3=Slope. Rise/Drop 3 for every 1 Left/Right movement

### Subject: ACT

Read the following passage and solve these specific questions.

I would walk a student through various "best practice" strategies of how to determine what the question is asking, how to quickly and correctly skim the passage, and find the correct answer. Remember, the ACT does not measure how smart you are. It measures how well you take the ACT! I have a number of strategies, tips, and tricks to help you master each of the ACT sections!

### Subject: Algebra

Devin is trying to fundraise to help raise money for the school dance by selling bags of cookies for $2.75. She is hoping to make $250 to donate to the cause! Last week, she already made $112. Write an equation modeling how many bags of cookies she needs to sell this week in order to meet her goal. After you have written your equation, then solve it.

First determine the most important information. Goal=$250 Starting point=$112 Money earned per sale of each bag of cookies=$2.75 Number of bags of cookies sold=x 112+2.75x=250 Subract 112 from each side 2.75x=138 Divide 2.75 from each side x=50.18 You can't sell .18 bags of cookies. So round up. x=51 bags of cookies to meet her goal! *You can rearrange the original equation multiple ways and still solve with the correct answer.
