Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1could you find the slope of 3x  y = 3 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Slope of line must be 3. y=3x+3 Comparwith y=mx+c

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Let eq be y=3x+c Find c by satisfying the equation with (4,2) Then put value of c in above equation you will get the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So i have to change the equation to y=mx+b?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be y=3x3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in the answer choices they're looking for a fraction in the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0becaus b= slope in y=mx+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, so your answer will be of the form y  3x +c now we have the point 4,2 plug in x= 4, y= 2 in that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12 = 3*4 + c yes thats right, now what is c ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Welcome, now solve other part carefully.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how? 2 = 12 +c subtract 12 from both sides to get c

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, so your equation as of now is y = 3x 14 right ? now what are your choices?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no right now i have 2 = 3*4  14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we had y = mx +c the slope we got , m = 3 so we were y= 3x +c. now we need to just find the "c" part. for which we used the given point. and got c = 14

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and if we plug c in y = 3x+c, we get y = 3x 14 :)
