Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is this f(x) = 8x  7 OR perhaps f(x) = 8x  7?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let f(x)=y f(x)=8x7 y=8x7 comparing this with y=mx+c here m=8,c=7 slope=8,yintercept(0,c)=(0,7)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so when they ask for the slope i put (07) and intercept?? 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0 The slopeintercept form of writing the equation of a line is the following: y = mx + b where m is the slope and b is the yintercept. Compare your function to this form. y = 8x  7 > yours y = mx + b > general form Comparing, you see that m = 8 and b = 7. Because b is the yintercept, it has an xcoordinate of 0 which would give it the ordered pair (0, 7). Most people just say that the yintercept is 7. But, if you need to use the yintercept in a calculation, you would want to know how to write it as (0,7).
