8x + y = –18 –8x + y = –18 8x – y = –18 8x + y = 18

use y=mx + b where, m = slope b = y-intercept (the y-intercept is the point where x = 0)
Australopithecus
  • Australopithecus
Just sub the slope that is given, and the x and y value of the point and solve for b. Remember a point in this case is defined as (x,y)

once you have solved for b just sub along with the slope into the equation y = mx + b remember the y value is the output and the x value is the input, so they are changing the slope and y-intercept are constants

So it would be B?

I do and will. :)

-8(-2) + b = (-2) b = -16 - 2 b = -18 y = (-8)x + (-18)
Australopithecus
  • Australopithecus
y + 8x = -18

  • Australopithecus
so no it is not b sorry I read the answers wrong ha I'm half asleep
