@tkhunny I have no clue
that's the question I don't no how to do the problem
We are going to need a better question. There don't appear to be any instructions. Shall we graph it? Talk about it? Buy it roses and take it to the prom? What?
BUT I THINK IM POST TO GRAPH IT THO
We can graph it. Have you met the term "Slope-Intercept Form"? You may have seen an example like this, "y = mx + b".
Excellent. We have this: y = x+1 This is already in slope-intercept form. m = 1 (the invisible coefficient on the x) b = 1 (the constant term) Agreed?
The y-intercept is 1, making a point on the graph, (0,1). Plot this point and we are well on our way.
So I just the graph and plot (0,1)?
That's where we start on this one. The slope-intercept form gives us that y-intercept. We stll need more information. That's just the place to start.
ok ive graphed it
Now we need the slope. In this case, m = 1. A slope of 1. "Slope" is an odd sort of thing. You do have to get used to it a little. You may have heard "rise over run" or "change in y divided by change in x". These are good descriptions, but a little abstract. I prefer to think of it in two pieces... 1) You PROMISE to move 1 space in the positive x direction. 2) How far in the positive y direction shall I move? It is the agreement in #2 that is the slope. x always moves 1 and y always moves "the slope". With a slope of 1, this means as always, x moves one to the right and y moves 1 (the slope) up. This should bring us to the point (1,2) -- one right and slope up.
so I graph (1,2)?
That's where the slope took us from (0,1). +1 for x and +Slope for y. Then we're done. Two points determine a line, so get a really long ruler, connect the dots, and extend the line as far as you can in both directions.
so I was doing something but im back
ok so let me get this straight I stayed on the line because of the "0" and I went up "1" and put my dot then now I stay on the line and I go over "1" and up "2"? @tkhunny
y-intercept of 1 says start at (0,1) Slope of 1 says move to (0+1,1+Slope) = (1,2)
so Im right? there should be two dots connecting and a long line?
I'm nervous about this: " go over "1" and up "2"" You should go over 1 and up 1 (the slope) and this should get you to (1,2). So, you MAY be saying the right thing. I just can't tell.
but I graphed the the (0,1) already?????????????
What's fine. What other point did you graph, based on what the slope told you to do?
(0,1) & (1,2) ???????? and got two dots and straight line?
Those are the right two points. Please draw a line through them and be done!
ok perfect but one quick question where and why did I have to go over 2?
I never said that. That's why I made you repeat it when you said it. It was incorrect. The slope is 1. This means x moves 1 and y moves 1. No 2.
so what the correct graphing?
You MUST pay better attention. This is the third time we have concluded this problem. The y-intercept say plot (0,1). The slope says plot (1,2) This defines the line to graph. Connect the two points and you are done.
are u changing the x into the number one and adding it? because the problem only gave the number 1 and I have already graphed it that way I just want to make sure this sticks in my head @tkhunny
I do not know what else to tell you. There are only three pieces. They are clearly defined in my last post.
got ya thanks for the help
@tkhunny I got the problem down but I really need help with this next one
If it's in slope-intercept form, yo uneed to show me ALL of the contrsuction. Name the three pieces.
it isn't in slop-intercept form @tkhunny
I bumped it up to the top @tkhunny
