Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yintercept is the value of y when x=0, this coincides with where the graph crosses the yaxis It can be found for any line given a point and the slope of the line > y=mx + b >b = y  mx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The point that is located on the yaxis (: [the vertical line]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0looks like you gotta give it you best guess.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you know the data points on the graph use them to find the slope > m = (y2y1)/(x2x1) use this to determine yintercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hah! but only one data point is for sure... gotta follow line and guess at it lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0pretty sure you dont have to guess using the 2 points (11,10132), (15,10180) i get a slope of 12 and yintercept of 10,000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0graph only show on point on a line that is known. how you gonna know the other point with accuracy? you aint. gotta guess.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol ok yes i guessed but it was a pretty educated guess plus it makes sense for the initial value to be a rounded figure like 10,000 :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok you are given this graph with a linear line every linear line is of the form y=mx+b where m is the slope of the line and b is where it crosses the yaxis ok? where are you at in school?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i am in college algebra i get everything except the slope and the yintercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok for the line the xvalues are the input and the yvalues are the output slope is looking at how much y changes for every change of 1 in x rise/run go to the graph pick a point and then count how far you go up and over to get to the next point, thats slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=mx+b the 'm' is the yslope, rise over run. the 'b' is the yintercept, the point that is on the yaxis.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0intercept means to catch the ball. y line catches the ball at what spot on it?
