start at any point that is on the line then go up 5 units, then go 4 units to the right to get to the next point

can you start at the origin?

say we have this starting point dw:1359348640310:dw

if you go up 5 units you land here dw:1359348680876:dw

then you would draw a line through those two points dw:1359348773195:dw

now you can move that "starting point" to wherever you want

i still don't understand about who to find the starting point

You need a Y intercept

are you sure? well if you dont have you you can start anywhere from the graph...the graph i drew is negative slope tho

yeah that last graph probably confused them lol ; D

Can you write out the entire question as its seen?

the one with the negative slope

bettyboop8904Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok if you draw the graph the yintercept with be 5/4 or 1 1/4

then the slope is 5/4 rise over run: so you rise 5 and you run 4

so its best to start with the yintercept?
 one year ago

bettyboop8904Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes that's what I always do. I plug the yintercept in first and then you do the slope to find the next point so you can draw the line = )

kaisanBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so if the yint was 5/4 i would go 5 units first then to the right 4 units? but i still don't understand to start when i'm graphing, i tried starting on the origin but my online hw says its wrong
 one year ago

bettyboop8904Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what do you mean starting on the origin? you should only be putting the yintercept in. In the graph you have x and y values. With the yintercept being 5/4 the point is written as \[(0,\frac{ 5 }{ 4 })\]

bettyboop8904Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
If you were to start at the origin the starting equation would have to read y=(5/4)x+0 or y=(5/4)x
 one year ago

bettyboop8904Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but if your slope was (5/4) then the equation would read \[y=\frac{ 5 }{ 4 }x +\frac{ 5 }{ 4 }\] then you would fall down 5 and then go to the right 4 or you could rise 5 and then go to the left 4; Just as long as when you do the rise over run you are only using one negative motion (fall down or go left bc those are negative x and yvalues) for only one of the numbers. You can place the negative either on the top or on the bottom but never both. @kaisan

this shows both ways on the graph
