looks like a slope of 3 and y intercept of 4

Look at the graph to find points where you can see the exact values. (2,2) and (1,1) are two such points. Difference of 1 in the x values gives a difference of 3 in the y values, so the slope is 3 (y goes down as x goes up). The y intercept is just the value of y where the line crosses the y axis, and that is 4. the formula for the line in slope intercept form is y = mx + b where m is slope and b is yintercept, so y = 3x 4, choice d).

ya...........for sure its d firstly the y intercept is 4 and secondly the graph passes through (2,2)

What is the slope of a line perpendicular to the line in this graph? i got 1/3

i think you forgot to take the reciprocal of it

ohh so it would just be 1/3 instead of 1/3?

whpalmer4Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Slope of a perpendicular line will be 1/m. m in this graph is 1/3 (3 units to the right for x to make 1 unit up for y), so the correct answer would be 1/(1/3) or 3. you want the line to be going steeply down from left to right

move 1 unit right in x, down 3 in y

the reciprocal of a # is what you get when you take 1 divided by the #

always good to mark off a pair of points with the new equation to make sure the line is what you expect!

ok i have one more question about graphing..do you guys want me to post in as a new question or just post it here? aand thankyou so much! and yes, I tend to make sign errors a lot lol

noo. too bad i still cant see the points..idk why they would put it soo small

whpalmer4Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
If the slope is 1, then it should move one point down and one to the right, like in aaa.gif

look carefully at the choices. which one has (4, 2) as a point, and a slope of 1

They've all got (4,2) as a point. only aaa.gif has a slope of 1
