Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What would the equation look like out of these? y = 2x + 6 y = one halfx + 3 y = one halfx + 6 y = 2x + 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you could just plug in the values and solve for b. y = 1/2x + b 3 = 1/2(6)+ b 3 = 3 + b 6 = b
