117) If no sides of a triangle have the same Length, the triangle is called scalene (pronounced SKAY leen). And, as you might remember, if the triangle has at least two sides that are the same length, the triangle is called isosceles. Use the markings or description in each diagram below to decide if DABC is isosceles or scalene. Assume the diagrams are not drawn to scale.
118) Finding and using a pattern is an important problemsolving skill necessary for your study of mathematics. The patterns in Diamond Problems are used later in the course to solve other types of algebraic problems.
Look for a pattern in the first three diamonds below. For the fourth diamond, explain how to find the missing numbers (?) if you know the two numbers (#).

126) Solve the equations below for x, if possible. Be sure to check your solution.
a. 3x – 1 /4 = 5/11
b. 6 – 5(2x – 3) = 4x + 7
c. 3x/4 + 2 = 4x – 1
138) Consider the equation y = ½ x — 4. 138 HW eTool (Desmos).
a. Without graphing, where is the xintercept of y = ½ x — 4.
b. On graph paper, make a table and graph y = ½ x —4.
c. Using your graph from part (b), how can you find the xintercept of y = ½ x — 4? How do you find it in the table? Explain.
