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

vf321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Well, let's try to figure it out. How about this. Given two points, what's the slope of the line they make?
 one year ago

vf321Best 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?

panlac01Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
she just gave the slope, so that's a line

panlac01Best 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 :)

vf321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Okay, @candrie , when you're at the yintercept, what's the coordinate pair?

math is tough for me but i am awesome in english and everything else

vf321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Oh the problem gives it to you. What is the yintercept pair?
 one year ago

vf321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Do you agree that the yintercept is on the line, @candrie ?

vf321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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.
 one year ago

vf321Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So put in the yintercept's values into the formula.
 one year ago

vf321Best 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?
 one year ago

candrieBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
just needed the equation
 one year ago

vf321Best 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

y=mx+b y=0x+6 y=_____

panlac01Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
anything multiplied to zero is _____
 one year ago

panlac01Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
therefore y=0x+6 (zero multiplied by x, plus six) y=_____

panlac01Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the final answer is your equation, the whole thing

panlac01Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you got it already, but 0x can be further simplified by taking it away of the universe

candrieBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
my answer will be y=0+6?
 one year ago

candrieBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes i figured that after i wrote it

try to connect the graphs with the information given, it will help you learn the concepts better
