Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First you need to put it into slopeintercept form which is y=mx+b m is the slope and b is the y intercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your slope is 4/1 and your y intercept is 2/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To graph it start by finding the y intercept. once you have the point of (0,2/3) then you can use the slope to find the rest of your points

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since you have y=2/3x+4 should you start at 4 on the y axis and then do the slope over 2 up 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0woops sorry I had it back wards yours is correct so your slope is actually 2/3 and your y intercept is (0,4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's 4 wrote it wrong sorry your problem should look like this now: y=2/3x4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So y intercept is (0,4) and to find your other points remember that slope is rise, over run just like how an airplane has to get the speed before it can fly. so you will go over 2 and up 3.
