Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Oh my.. Lol, well I'l guess I'll teach you. So you know what coordinates are right? Like xintercept and yintercept?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The equation you're trying to solve is basically finding those, and the slope of the line. the equation is y=mx+b Which is slopeintercept form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2m= slope b= y intercept x= variable Look at the graph and where the line intersects on the y axis (Positive 4) and then the next (x,y) intercept ( In this case it's (1, 1))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0basically to find a line in \[\mathbb{R}^2\] you need 2 points (or the amount of coordinates for general spaces). So you need to find two points through which the line passes. You know that it goes from \[(2,2)\rightarrow(1,1)\] Now you gotta solve the equation y=mx+b turns out good since you have two points (two equations) and two unknowns (m and b) To find m, just use \[m=\frac{y_2y_1}{x_2x_1}\], where those are the respective coordinates y and x of both points we found earlier. Now that you know m, we only need b For this, use y=mx+b and subsitute there (x,y) of either poitns and the m Lets take point (2,2) > 2=m(2)+b b=2+2m thats it, so find m then b
