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

- anonymous

its been a long time

- anonymous

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

y=mx+b

- anonymous

im wrong

- anonymous

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?

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

0

- anonymous

all she has to do is plug it in the slope-intercept formula

- anonymous

Hmm... nvm. I was trying to teach, @panlac01 . Plug-n-chug is easy.

im working on a test which deadline is by 11pm pst and im desperate for any help i can get

- anonymous

listen to VF

- anonymous

but you almost nailed it, candrie :)

- anonymous

Okay, @candrie , when you're at the y-intercept, what's the coordinate pair?

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

Oh the problem gives it to you. What is the y-intercept pair?

- anonymous

0,6?

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

Do you agree that the y-intercept is on the line, @candrie ?

- anonymous

yes

in the end, remember to connect your final solution to its graph

- anonymous

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.

- anonymous

So put in the y-intercept's values into the formula.

- anonymous

y=0(0)+6

- anonymous

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?

- anonymous

just needed the equation

- anonymous

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 +(k-mh)
and k-mh =b

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

y=x+6?

- anonymous

Multiply by 0...

- anonymous

anything multiplied to zero is _____

- anonymous

0

- anonymous

therefore
y=0x+6 (zero multiplied by x, plus six)
y=_____

- anonymous

the final answer is your equation, the whole thing

- anonymous

y=6

- anonymous

o wait

- anonymous

y=0x+6?

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

out of the universe

- anonymous

my answer will be y=0+6?

- precal

or
y=6

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
