Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the y interept simply means the palce that the graph crosses the y axis. the y axis is also know as x = 0. so on a table of values, the y intercept will be the value for whatever the x=0 point will indicate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to make an equation we need "data" ..... or if we are given an equation we simply need to draw it on a graph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we have a table of x and y values, we can probably deduce a relation between x and y to create an equation that would mimic the data. Can you give me the "list" of cpprdinates? (x,y) style

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(6,10) (4,7)...like this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok...lets see if the slope of between the first 2 matches the slope between the first and last..... if they do, we know its a straight line..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0slope = change in "y"/ change in "x" y1y2/x1x2 47 4+7 3  =  =  610 6+10 4 our forst two points have a slope of 3/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0107 10+7 3  =  =  64 6+4 2 slope is 3/2...thats better

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y =10, 7, 4, 1, 25, ___ x= 6, 4, 2, 0, 2, 4 we seem to be missing a value...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y =10, 7, 4, 1, 2, 5 might be better x= 6, 4, 2, 0, 2, 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"y" changes by +3  all the way so our slope is a line "x" changes by +2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y = (3/2)x + b; where b is the value of our y intercept.. y = (3/2)x  1 would be our equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0does it make sense? or whould we "peel the onion of math":)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0........... ok. where do you get lost at. Finding the slope by the data given? or putting our information together into an equation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y =10(+3), 7(+3), 4(+3), 1(+3)..... with each step here, the value of y increase by a value of "3". right? x= 6, 4, 2, 0, 2, 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x= 6(+2), 4(+2), 2(+2), 0(+2), 2(+2)... and the value of "x" increases by "2" right?
