Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(1,4), m = 4 y = mx + b Sub to find b 4 = 4*1 + b b = 0  y = 4x m = 4 means slope = 4. slopeintercept form of equation of a straight line is y = mx + b. m is the slope. b is the yintercept. your equation starts of with the slopeintercept generic form of y = mx + b replace m with 4 to get y = 4x + b your line goes through the point (x,y) = (1,4) that means the xcoordinate is 1 and the y coordinate is 4. to find the yintercept, you replace y with 4 and x with 1 in the equation and solve for b. your equation of y = 4x + b becomes: 4 = (4 * 1) + b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok (1,4) now we need to substitute that into y =mx + b y = 4 x = 1 m = 4 y = m* x + b 4 = 4*(1) + b 4 = 4 + b we now need to add a 4 to both sides 4 = 4 + b +4 +4  0 = 0 + b ===> b = 0
