Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Correct :) In the equation form y = mx + b Which letter stands for the slope?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Correct again! So we know the answer will have the form y = (1/4)x + b And we are given the point (x, y) on the line as (8, 27) Now just substitute those values in the equation form and solve for b. Like this y = (1/4)x + b 27 =(1/4)8 + b b = 29 This gives the answer as y = (1/4)x + 29.
