Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol, in a much simpler way: let's write down the equation in terms of y first : \[y = 4  x/2\] m= 1/2 and vertical intercept is the yintercept when x= 0, substitute 0 in the equation in the place of x and solve for y. ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so my slope is 1/2 and my vertical int would be 4?
