## anonymous 5 years ago graph the equation using the slope and the y-intercept y=5/3x+3

1. anonymous

y=mx+b m=slope b=y-intercept First plot a point for y_intercept (0,b) Then use slope to get second point (rise/run)

2. anonymous

would it be y=3

3. anonymous

yes good

4. anonymous

(0,3) (-3,0)

5. anonymous

6. anonymous

(0,3) is correct but not your second point lets look at slope 5/3 right?

7. anonymous

slope = rise/run = 5/3 from any point if you go up 5 and to right 3 you will be on correct line

8. anonymous

Or you can think about plugging in 0 for y you have $0 = \frac{5}{3} x + 3$ So solve for x.
