Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the general from of linear function is : y=mx + b m is the slope, b is a constant then plug the values of x from the table into the function. x=0, y=4 > 4=m(0) +b > b=4 so now we know the value of b the function will be > y=mx + 4 then plug another value of x and y x=3, y=10 > 10=3m+4 > 3m=6 >m=2 finally we have the complete linear equation : y=2x+4 so when you plug x=6, you'll get y=12+4=16 and when y=24> 24=2x+6 > 2x=18 > x=9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes when you plug x=0 , it will be m times 0 and will left only b in the equation
