Well, do you know in the equation of a line \[y=m(xh)+k\] what each letter means?

Well, let's try to figure it out. How about this. Given two points, what's the slope of the line they make?
 2 years ago

vf321 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
No... that's an equation for the line. How about you tell me this. If you have \[p_1=(x, y)\] and \[p_2=(h, k)\], then what is the slope s you get between them?

she just gave the slope, so that's a line

panlac01 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
all she has to do is plug it in the slopeintercept formula

Hmm... nvm. I was trying to teach, @panlac01 . Plugnchug is easy.

but you almost nailed it, candrie :)

Okay, @candrie , when you're at the yintercept, what's the coordinate pair?

Oh the problem gives it to you. What is the yintercept pair?
 2 years ago

vf321 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Do you agree that the yintercept is on the line, @candrie ?

If a point is on a line, then its x and y values, when inserted into the formula you gave,\[y = m x +b\], must hold true.
 2 years ago

vf321 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So put in the yintercept's values into the formula.

vf321 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Well, I was trying to get you to say: 6=m(0)+b, so b = 6. But since you know what b and m are already, what's your question?
 2 years ago

candrie Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
just needed the equation
 2 years ago

vf321 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Well it is y = m x + b. The difference is that my equation is y = m (x  h) + k But they're really the same because y = m x  mh + k y = m x +(kmh) and kmh =b

Multiply by 0...

panlac01 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
anything multiplied to zero is _____

panlac01 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
therefore y=0x+6 (zero multiplied by x, plus six) y=_____

the final answer is your equation, the whole thing

you got it already, but 0x can be further simplified by taking it away of the universe

my answer will be y=0+6?
