Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, they give you both the x and y intercepts. this is two points on the line. xintercept: (3,0) yintercept: (0,5) // this is just a point on the line. we are choosing the xintercept y1 = 0 x1 = 3 so now we need to find slope which we can find using the slope formula. m = (y2y1)/(x2x1) m = (50)/(03) m = 5/3 m = 5/3 so we have (yy1) = m(xx1) (y0) = (5/3)(x3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1360639616826:dw now simply see the two points and you are done using this equation \[(YY _{1})=\frac{ (Y _{2}Y _{1}) }{ (X _{2}X _{1}) }*(XX _{1})\] and X1,Y1 is (3,0) and X2,Y2 is (0,5) , just plug in X2,X1 and Y2,Y1 , hope that helps @Megan_xoxo
