## anonymous one year ago What is the equation of the line expressed in slope-intercept form? MEDAL FOR WHOMEVER HELPS....plz

1. anonymous

here is the graph... not sure if the other is opening or not...

2. amilapsn

what would be the slope?

3. anonymous

y = –3x – 1 y = 3x + 2 y = 2x + 3 y = –2x + 3 these are the answer choices

4. amilapsn

Slope is positive right?

5. anonymous

y=mx+b in example... y=7x+2 7 would be the slope and 2 would be the y-intercept

6. amilapsn

yes..

7. anonymous

i am not good at doing it from a graph tho:/

8. amilapsn

slope is just y change to x change

9. amilapsn

k?

10. anonymous

i think the slope is negative so it would have to be either the first choice or the last by process of elimination

11. amilapsn

just try to climb the graph from left to right.... do you have to climb up or down..?

12. anonymous

it has to be D or the last choice because the y-intercept must be positive based on the graph....i think...

13. anonymous

so the answer is y = –2x + 3

14. amilapsn

No!!! \(\color{red}{\Large\sf{STOP!!!}}\)

15. anonymous

???

16. amilapsn

just tell me whether the graph is ascending or descending.....

17. anonymous

jpg of the graph is attached

18. amilapsn

ascending: \(\Large\sf{y}\) is increasing when \(\Large\sf{x}\) is increasing descending:\(\Large\sf{y}\) is decreasing when \(\Large\sf{x}\) is increasing
