Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0probably would not graph the xintercept. The most logically thing to do would be to graph the yintercept and then count down 1 (I'm going down 1 because of the negative sign) and go right 4. Another way to do it would be to create a "T" table, where you plug in values for x and evaluate y using 1/4x + 8. I prefer this method and I will use a minimum of three x values to plug in to make sure I am not making a mistake. Some other things to consider  whenever you have a NEGATIVE slope, the graph should be going down to the right, and a POSITIVE slope should be going up to the right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think first option ( 32,0) Is not the step in the plotting of this line on graph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is asking to graph using the slopeintercept method. THis method involves obtaining the yintercept and then following the slope. This means plot the yintercept and then plot another point using the slope and then draw the line through it. Therefore, fo r this particular method, there is no need for an xintercept. The fact that the form y = mx + b has yintercept and slope, but not the xintercept further proves the point. That being said, it is choice ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@Diana97 make sure that from next time you type the question correctly.. y = x + 8 Incorrect.. y = (1/4)x + 8 is the original equation...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I said that there is no need for an xintercept. Which answer choice involves the xintercept?
