Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Not quite.. I'm not sure how you are getting those numbers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Slopeintercept is basically a very short way of describing ANY straight line. It can be super useful in figuring out, say, how much money you make if you get paid an hourly wage.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The slope is "rise over run" or the ratio (fraction) of how far up or down the line goes for every bit it moves left or right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2In this case, for every "rise" of negative 3 (going down three) the line goes one to the right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So slope = 3/1. Slope = 3 (because any number divided by 1 is itself).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yup, that's the slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now the INTERCEPT just means "what value of y does this line cross the yaxis" the intercept is literally JUST A NUMBER. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So look at your picture. What value of y does the line cross (or touch, or intercept, they all mean the same thing) the yaxis?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The slope intercept form of a line is y = mx + b where m is the slope (3) and b is the intercept (4). Literally rewrite that but instead of m write 3 and instead of b write +4 and you're done. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The second one.===> y=3x+4 The crazy thing is... that describes the ENTIRE line. All the points on the line obey that equation. Question  what is the value of Y on the line when X = 2? (look at your picture)
