Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The yintercept is where the graph cuts the yaxis. Read that point from the graph and post here. Then, we'll have to figure the slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. We'll use the slopeintercept form of the equation of a line: y = mx + b where b is the yintercept and m is the slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So far, we have y = mx 3. One way to think about slope is the change in y over the change in x. @elexusvanderhorst How have you been computing slope? We'll do what you already know although I'm thinking we can read the slope off the graph. Tell me what you think.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We'll read it from this graph. I'll post a diagram shortly. Before that, recall that slope has to do with the rate of change of y with respect to x. If the slope of a line is 5 over 7, then that means every time x moves 7 units to the right, the corresponding value of y moves up 5 units.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For a line, slope is constant. In this problem, as x moves 2 to the right, y goes up by 1. So, the slope is 1/2. So, what is the equation of the line in y = mx + b form? Recall that you already found the intercept (So far, we have y = mx 3) .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@elexusvanderhorst yes for y=1/2x3. I might write it as y = (1/2) x  3. I <3 ur pic > I thought she was talking about my diagram.
