    Do you know what the slope-intercept form of a line is? If so, you can literally drop the slope, x-value, and y-intercept given in the problem right into it, then solve for y. :)

    y = 2x - 4 is the equation of the line. Now let x = 6 in the above equation and solve for y. :)

    so i did the same thing for another problem...."A line has a slope of -2/3 and a y-intercept of (0, 3). What is the value of y when x = 4?"
