Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first you should graph it so you can find what point is on the y intercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i already graphed it, but i need to know how to algebraically.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right so what is your y intercept on the graph?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because to do it algebraically you want to put it into slopeintercept form which is y=mx+b m being your slope and b be ing your yintercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so your answer is y=3/5x3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this means that (0,3) is the y intercept and if you use your slope you can graph it by going over 3and up 5 for each point.. make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes that makes sense... however, is there a way to find this using math like a formula?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright thanks for the help. i was just wondering cause my math teacher was trying to show us a different way.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have another question... what happens if you cant find a y intercept. as in the line is in between the coordinates. i cant determine the intercept like i think it would be a fraction or something

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well there is always going to be a y intercept and it very well can be a fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you have a specific example?
