Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well if you would follow up with some kind of response rather than just posting more problems you might get a longer explanation. What is confusing to you about the problems you posted?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If x = 1 then y is 0 yes. Now if x increases by 1 more (goes to 2) then how much does y increase by?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, the line is Y=2x1 y=mx+b so the m is 2, and the b is 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Err wait, sorry. No if x = 1 y = 1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The slope of the line is "How much does y increase (or decrease) as x increases

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait now imm confused again.m=2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if x goes up by 1, y will go up by 2 more.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually you have another way to find the slope. first you need to find two point that's passed by the line. just plug x=0 > y=2(0)1 > y=1 then plug y=o > 0=2x1 > x=1/2 now you have two points (0,1), this is the (x1,y1). and (1/2 ,0), the (x2,y2) the formula to find slope is : m= (y2y1)/(x2x1) then just plug the point, you'll get m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If x = 1, y = 2(1) 1 = 21 = 1. If x = 2, y = 2(2)  1 = 41 = 3. If x = 3, y = 2(3) 1 = 6 1 = 5. So we can see that when x increases by 1, y increases by 2. So the slope of the line is 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Once you have determined the slope of the line, you can find a perpendicular line by inverting it (divide 1 by it) and make it the opposite sign.
