Accepted Solution

A:
Part A;
There are many system of inequalities that can be created such that only contain points A and E in the overlapping shaded regions.

Any system of inequalities which is satisfied by (2, -3) and (3, 1) but is not satisfied by (-3, -4), (-4, 2), (2, 4) and (-2, 3) can serve.

An example of such system of equation is
y β€ x
y β₯ -2x
The system of equation above represent all the points in the first quadrant of the coordinate system.

The area above the line y = -2x and to the right of the line y = x is shaded.

Part B:
It can be verified that points A and E are solutions to the system of inequalities above by substituting the coordinates of points A and E into the system of equations and see whether they are true.

Substituting A(2, -3) into the system we have:
-3 β€ 2
-3 β₯ -2(2) β -3 β₯ -4
as can be seen the two inequalities above are true, hence point A is a solution to the set of inequalities.

Also, substituting E(3, 1) into the system we have:
1 β€ 3
1 β₯ -2(3) β 1 β₯ -6
as can be seen the two inequalities above are true, hence point E is a solution to the set of inequalities.

Part C:
Given that William can only attend a school in her designated zone and that William's zone is defined by y < βx - 1.
To identify the schools that William is allowed to attend, we substitute the coordinates of the points A to F into the inequality defining William's zone.
For point A(2, -3): -3 < -(2) - 1 β -3 < -2 - 1 β -3 < -3 which is false
For point B(-3, -4): -4 < -(-3) - 1 β -4 < 3 - 1 β -4 < 2 which is true
For point C(-4, 2): 2 < -(-4) - 1 β 2 < 4 - 1 β 2 < 3 which is true
For point D(2, 4): 4 < -(2) - 1 β 4 < -2 - 1 β 4 < -3 which is false
For point E(3, 1): 1 < -(3) - 1 β 1 < -3 - 1 β 1 < -4 which is false
For point F(-2, 3): 3 < -(-2) - 1 β 3 < 2 - 1 β 3 < 1 which is false
Therefore, the schools that WilliamΒ is allowed to attend are the schools at point B and C.
