    Alright, so lets pick up where we left off. Can you find two points on the line?

    @ilovenyc Well, go over to 2 on the x axis, and then go up until you hit the line. What y are you at? That's how you get a point.

    @ilovenyc Not quite, although the drawing isn't too great. (2,1) is on the line.

    To find the slope m of the line segment joining the points, use the slope formula

    Right, so try doing that with (2,1) and (4,7)

    Not quite, it's more of a subtraction. Here's the slope formula: \[\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1} \; \; \; x_1 = 2 \; \; \; x_2 = 4 \; \; \; y_1=1 \; \; \; y_2=7 \]

    @ilovenyc So see if you can use that to find the slope. I'll be back in just a little bit.

    @ilovenyc Alright, I'm back now. So did you get the slope from that?

    • one year ago

    6,and 2

    • one year ago
  27. srossd

    Well, 6 divided by 2.

    • one year ago
  28. srossd
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    So the slope ends up being 3.

    @ilovenyc So now you know that the line will be y=3x+b. So plug in x = 0 to that, and you'll be y=b. So look at the graph, and go to the point where x=0. Find what y is.

    The drawing is bad again, it's actually -5. But close enough that I'm pretty sure you get it.

    So if your equation was y=3x+b, and b=-5, what's your final equation?

    • one year ago
  34. ilovenyc
    Best Response

    2 = 3*(-4) + b?

    • one year ago
  35. srossd
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 0

    No, no - just plug in the value of b (-5) to y=3x+b. The x and y should stay.

    Ok, so you solved for b, so just put it where b was. The equation comes out to be y=3x-5.

    so B is the answer

    Actually, it's A, since everything above the line is shaded. B would be the opposite shading.
