Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Slope is rise over run. Rise = change in the ycoordinate, run=change in the xcoordinate. You have two points. Call them (x1,y1), (x2,y2). So you plug them into (y1y2)/(x1x2). It doesn't matter what one you do first, as long as both points are consistent. So you got the slope right, so m is 1/2. :) Then you take a point and plug it in to solve for when x=0. Take (3,5) and plug it in to y=mx+b 5 = .5 * 3 + b 5 = 1.5 + b 6.5 = b y = .5x + 6.5, if I'm right.
