Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0start 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then you would draw a line through those two points dw:1359348773195:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are you sure? well if you dont have you you can start anywhere from the graph...the graph i drew is negative slope tho

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok if you draw the graph the yintercept with be 5/4 or 1 1/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then the slope is 5/4 rise over run: so you rise 5 and you run 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so its best to start with the yintercept?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes 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 = )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what 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 \[(0,\frac{ 5 }{ 4 })\]

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but 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
