any ideas?

- anonymous

im thinking y=3x-1

- skullpatrol

why?

- anonymous

becuase 3 is the slop and 1 is the y-intercept

- skullpatrol

What do you think the equation of given line on the graph is?

2.5

- anonymous

yes 2.5

- anonymous

but thats not an answer choice

- skullpatrol

2.5 is a number, not an equation, right?

- anonymous

true

- anonymous

would it be y = 3

- skullpatrol

why 3?

- anonymous

because there is no slope its in one spot

- skullpatrol

yes, so the equation is y = 2.5

- anonymous

but thats not an option

- skullpatrol

stop looking at the answers ...
