Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1use y=mx + b where, m = slope b = yintercept (the yintercept is the point where x = 0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Just 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1once 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 yintercept are constants
