Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, do you know in the equation of a line \[y=m(xh)+k\] what each letter means?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, let's try to figure it out. How about this. Given two points, what's the slope of the line they make?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No... 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0she just gave the slope, so that's a line

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, @candrie , when you're at the yintercept, what's the coordinate pair?

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If 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.

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just needed the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you got it already, but 0x can be further simplified by taking it away of the universe
