Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hello, ok, do you have the slopeintercept equation? (x,y) = (4,4) is the point and m=3/8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04 = (3/8) * 4 + b, solve for b. Therefore, b = 4  (3/8)*4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0b = (8/8)*4  (3/8)*4 = (5/8)*4 = 5/2 = 2.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is just for easier operation. you have (3/8)*4, which you could convert to 12/8, then convert 4 to 32/8, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but to get to 32/8, you multiply 4 by (8/8). because both values are 4 * (some fraction)... you have 4* ( 8/8  3/8 ) which is 4 *( 5/8 )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this reduces the actual work you do, because you didn't have to obtain the product of 4 * 8/8
