    y = mx + b is the slope intercept form, which b representing the y intercept. The y intercept is where x = 0 or (0,y).

    It's nothing hon! Alrighty, well I'm going to give you the link to the program, it's really helpful to graph your problem so you can get an image in your head of it. http://www.geogebra.org/cms/ I recommend you download that for help in the future. Meanwhile, I already graphed your problem with the program, so I'll attach that image in just a sec!

    You're answer said 0 but the graph represents that x=10.

    That's not my answer... I was showing you what you should be looking for.

    when x=0, that means that there will be a value directly on the y axis. However, your answer doesn't line up with the information that you gave me.
