Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The general linear equation is y = mx+b where m is the slope so m = 2 which means y = mx+b becomes y = 2x+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We're given the point (4,0), so x = 4 and y = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Plug these two in to get y = 2x+b 0 = 2(4)+b 0 = 8 + b Keep going to solve for b
