### Q: How do you identify a line parallel to a given line?

To identify a line parallel to a given line, you need to determine the slope of the given line and find another line with the same slope. The slope of a line can be determined by the coefficient of the x term in the equation.

### Q: How do you solve a system of inequalities graphically?

To solve a system of inequalities graphically, you need to graph each inequality on the coordinate plane and find the region that satisfies both inequalities. The solution is the overlapping region on the graph.

### Q: What are the methods to solve a system of equations?

The two common methods to solve a system of equations are the elimination method and the substitution method. In the elimination method, you manipulate the equations to eliminate one variable and solve for the other. In the substitution method, you solve one equation for one variable and substitute it into the other equation to solve for the remaining variable.

### Q: How do you solve word problems involving coins?

To solve word problems involving coins, you typically set up equations based on the given information. Assign variables to represent the number of each coin, and use the equations to express the relationships between the variables. Then solve the equations to find the values of the variables.

## Summary & Key Takeaways
