Match the correct equation with the graph. y = 3x + 4
y = 5/2x + 5
y = 2/5x + 2
y = 3/2x + 2
x = 4

It means whenever the graph touches the yaxis. Look at the graph you have provided and tell me where does your graph touch (intercept) the yaxis.

Good. So which of the options in the question say that the equation touches at 5?

Ok, you're close but listen. Whenever you see an equation of this form. y = mx + b Where m=(2/5) and b = 2. You know that b is always the yintercept. Now check them again and tell me. What do you think? Since b=2 here, it means that the graph touches at 2.

so it would be this right? y = 5/2x + 5
