    okiee :)) so we have two ordered pairs (0,2) and (4,3) ordered pairs are represented as (x,y) so in this case our Xs are 0 and 4 out Ys are 2 and 3 confusing?

    okay so y=mx+b is known as the slope-intercept formula m represents the slope b represents the y-intercept

    y-intercept is where the line hits the y-axis If we put it in an ordered pair form the x MUST be 0 so in this case our y-intercept is?

    not quite, the ordered pair should look something like this (0, y) and y can be any number but x MUST be 0
