Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you know the general "pointslope" formula?\[y=mx+b\] Are you familiar with that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Alright, well this formula is how you define a line! For a line, the "m" and "b" variables will be numbers instead. "m" is "slope" and "b" is "yintercept" Are either of those familiar to you? And are you familiar with plotting points on a graph using a formula?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You do not really need to do all this for a multiple choice question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just replace in the 3 equations and see which one works

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0C would be the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1eliassaab is correct. eliassaab recommends that you take the x value of one point and put it into the equation, you should get the y value of that point from calculating the correct option.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There's another quick method to determine if a formua might be right, just by looking to see if "m" and "b" are positive on your plot and then finding the choice that has those same positive or negatives. That requires a little knowledge of how it works anyway. Wold you like to work through this as if there are no multiple choices?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That would be helpful for both finding the answer without choices, and understanding the concept some more in a different way than the substitution method of eliassaab.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Would you like to work through it as if there were no multiple choice, then? :) eliassaab's method will work every time for multiple choice, though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1By looking at a picture with no points, you can narrow down the possible equations. By going through some algebra, you can find the equation by knowing any two points on the line.
