Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so wat do u think d slope wuld be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well idk im not sure how to even start out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok the equation is in d form y=mx+b where m is d slope.....so the value in front of x is the slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the slope is 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now since d equation of the line we are looking for has that same slope we are done

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well not done per say but almost there.......slope intercept form is y=mx+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y= 2(4) + 5(8) y = 8 + 40

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=4 and x=8 i.e 8= 2(4) +b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so where are u confused about

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do u understand nw?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0all u do nxt is just take ur value of b and put it in dis equation which is d equation we are looking for. y= 2x+(the value of b u got)
