Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First equation yintercept is 4 (where x =0). Second equation xintercept is 5 (where y = 0) So, the points this new line passes through are (0,4) and (5,0). Now, find the equation of this line as you would find for any two points.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The slope is 4/5 but is the x intercept also 5, making the equation y=4/5x + 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But according to the answers, this is wrong?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Welll....slope is 4/5. You should use "y intercept" not "x intercept" for the constant.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Slope = (40)/(05) = 4/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the y intercept, also 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just looking at the line you can tell slope is negative because as "x" increases, value of "y" keeps decreasing.
