Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Use the problem as an example. What is m the slope. You know it is the coefficient of x!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this question is designed to get you to become familiar with the form of the equation; not any particular points on it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0slope intercept uses the slope and the intercept as part of the equation itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When the line equation is in slope intercept form, as is the one you are working with, the coefficient of x is the slope, the constant is the intercept. They are there in your equation, just pick them out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what radar is saying is that you don't need to do anything. The answer is right in front of you. Many times in math we complicate things too much and many times the answer is right in front of us.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So in this case m is the slope. so what is M? Then what is B since B is the y intercept?
