Q:

A ball is thrown straight up into the air, 8ft to the right of the house, which is at the origin. For which values A, B, and C will Ax + By = C represent the line that includes the path of the ball

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:A = 1, B = 0 and C = 8Step-by-step explanation:If we consider the vertical line to be y-axis and the horizontal line as the x-axis, then the ball is thrown parallel to the y-axis from a point which is (8,0). {Since the house is the origin and the ball is thrown from a point which is 8 feet to the right of the house} So, the equation of the path of the thrown ball will be x = 8 Therefore, A = 1, B = 0 and C = 8.
