## needmathhelp7 2 years ago WILL GIVE MEDAL & FAN. What is the slope of the line given to the equation below?

1. needmathhelp7

2. needmathhelp7

@Chelsea04 @Kuoministers @UnkleRhaukus

3. Kuoministers

to find the y intercept x needs to be equal to 0

4. Chelsea04

she's asking for the slope m in this case is -1 because -x is the same as -1*x

5. UnkleRhaukus

\[y=mx+b\] \(m\) is the slope \(b\) is the \(y\)-value of the \(y\)-intercept the position \((x,y)\) of the y-intercept is \((0,b)\)

6. needmathhelp7

so sorry @Chelsea04 !! I'm looking for the y- intercept insted oops xD That's what i meant to say

7. needmathhelp7

@UnkleRhaukus so the y intercept is just 0 ? :)

8. Chelsea04

no, that is the coordinate point, so (0,b) you just insert the b value so the intercept is 72, you just need to write it as a coordinate point

9. UnkleRhaukus

an order pair is two numbers

10. Chelsea04

which means that it is (0, 72) ordered pair is the same as coordinate point which you find on graphs

11. needmathhelp7

How do you do that @UnkleRhaukus ? :)

12. needmathhelp7

@Chelsea04 yeah!

13. Kuoministers

well apparantly chealsea just gave away answer XDD

14. Kuoministers

but pretty good explaination :)

15. Chelsea04

(x,y): (0,72)

16. needmathhelp7

so it"s 72 ?

17. needmathhelp7

lol

18. Chelsea04

no, you write it is (0,72)

19. Chelsea04

well, yes but write it is (0,72)

20. Chelsea04

*as

21. Chelsea04

do you understand?

22. needmathhelp7

oohhhh thank you! Yeah I have another question will post now :) Thank u all!!
