3. Solve the system by the substitution method. Show your work.
2y – x = 5
x2 + y2 – 25 = 0
4. Graph the function. Then use your graph to find the indicated limit. You do not have to
provide the graph
f(x) = 5x – 3, f(x)
5. Use Gaussian elimination to find the complete solution to the system of equations, or state
that none exists. Show your work.
4x – y + 3z = 12
x + 4y + 6z = -32

6. Solve the system of equations using matrices. Use Gaussian elimination with backsubstitution.

x + y + z = -5
x – y + 3z = -1
4x + y + z = -2
7. A woman works out by running and swimming. When she runs, she burns 7 calories per
minute. When she swims, she burns 8 calories per minute. She wants to burn at least 336
calories in her workout. Write an inequality that describes the situation. Let x represent the
number of minutes running and y the number of minutes swimming. Because x and y must be
positive, limit the boarders to quadrant I only.
8. A statement Sn about the positive integers is given. Write statements S1, S2, and S3, and show that
