Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so slope would be (2 2) / (0  1) which comes out to be 4 so the slope is four

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now we have the formula for a line y = mx + b where m is the slope and b is the intercept put slope in y = 4x + b we are also given two points, since both points are on the line, you can pick either say we pick the first one, plug it in for x and y 2 = 4(1) + b b = 2 line is y = 4x  2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if the equation is (3,2), (0,3) then u would switch it around to (0,2), (3,3)????

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just because we are live, doesn't mean we are going to respond instantly you can't switch them because you would be changing the points

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then wat? I don't get it then.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then you find the slope, like we did in the first question change in y over change in x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the question is find a line between (3,2), (0,3) so find the slope change in y over change in x (3  2)/ (0  3) slope is 1/3 understand this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, so its kinda like subtracting

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes slope formula is \[\frac{x1  x2}{y1  y2}\] is this more clear?
