1honey 4 years ago find the slope-intercept equation of the line that has the given characteristics. slope 2.3 and y-intercept (0,-4)

1. polpak

Remember what I said earlier about the slope intercept form?

2. 1honey

no, I cant pull up the info from yesterday

3. polpak

It was from this morning.

4. polpak

The general form for the equation of a line is f(x) = Mx + b Where M is the slope, and b is the intercept.

5. polpak

So take the slope and intercept you're given and plug them in.

6. 1honey

2.3x+4

7. polpak

Not quite. Note that the intercept is (-4)

8. 1honey

or is it set up as m=2.3x + 4

9. polpak

No.

10. polpak

The first thing was almost right

11. 1honey

oh ok

12. 1honey

m=2.3x + -4

13. polpak

not m. f(x) or y

14. polpak

f(x) = 2.3x - 4 (after simplifying the addition with a negative)

15. 1honey

is the answer to the math question f(x) = 2.3x - 4 or m1=0 b=-1.7

16. polpak

find the slope-intercept equation

17. polpak

So the equation is f(x) = 2.3x - 4

thanks

Sure thing =)
