Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and ur y intercept tells u a lot, then u can use ur slope to find the other points

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes please. and can you tell me how to find the x and y intercepts i know i have to choose numbers and plug them in but do i choose any random numbers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first, put it in slopeintercept form. you can do this by subtracting 5x and take it to the other side. you should get 3y=5x+7 now, you divide 3 by all the other numbers on the right side of the equation. you should get y= 5/3x  7/3. 5/3 is postivive because a negative divided by a negative equals a positive. your slope should be 5 up, 3 to the right. your y intercept is 7/3. you can put this in decimal form to make it simpler which is about 2.3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your yintercept is where you graph on the y  axis. your slope is where you go from that point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you can graph 2.3 on the y axis, and from that point, you go 5 up, 3 to the right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well there r 2 ways to learn it, the slope way or x and y intercept way

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay lets say m was not a fraction and the equation was y=3x=6 how would u graph that equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x is your slope, thats how much you rise and run and the other number, 6 thats your yintercept (where you put your point on the yaxis) , so what you want to do is graph the 6 on the y axis. The 3 will tell you to go 3 up, and 1 to the left. because 3/1 is the same as 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i meant: from where you graphed 6, you should go 3 up and 1 to the right
