**Answer:**

No, the equation is not a linear equation.

**Step-by-step explanation:**

There is the x^2 thing that doesn't make it a linear equation.

1 yard since 1 yard is 36 inches and 35 inches is less than 36 inches

**Answer:**

**-4.**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Let x be the multiplicative inverse, then:

-1/4 * x = 1

x = 1 / (-1/4)

= 1 * -4

= **-4.**

**Answer:**

96 m²2 (this is the last of the given possible answers).

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Recognize that this figure is made up of a parallogram (on the left) and a triangle (on the right).

The length of the parallelogram is 10 m and the height 6 m. Thus, the area of this parallelogram is (10 m)(6 m) = 60 m².

The formula for the area of a triangle is A = (1/2)(base)(height). Here, the area is

A = (1/2)(12 m)(6 m) = 36 m²

The total area of the figure is the sum of the two subareas:

A = 60 m² + 36 m² = **96 m²**
