    So what do you know about the graph?

    I don't really understand what you mean. The graph show in the link.

    I know, but since it's your problem I want you to think about it. That's how you're going to learn how to do this in the future.

    oh, thanks.. I guess the original is y= -1/3x, and the height will be 4?? so F(x,y)=y+1/3*x... that is all i can think of right now

    the height keeps changing, so you need to have a variable for it.

    so you're right about the first park. y=-1/3x But y already means something, so you want to choose a different variable for the y-intercept.

    okay, well do you understand why y=-1/3x, since you came up with that?

    yes, get the first line and the original. and we can see the slope is -1/3

    Don't worry. It's just on your computer. I have that happen a lot. okay, and you now that there are a lot of lines with the same slope, right?

    yes, and they are paralleled equa spaced

    right and you know that the slope intercept form of an equation for a line is y=mx+b

    so you know what m is, so now you need to figure out what b is.

    I am a lil bit confused. Why they give the value on the y=x

    they spaced it out from 14- -6, what r those number for?

    I think those are the values of t
