Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First off you need to find the x and y coordinates

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay so, first when x=0 what is y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y=2x+490 when x=0 the equation becomes y=2*(0) + 490 =490 so we have this point (0,490) graph this first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y=2x+490 this line is given in slope intercept form y=mx+b we saw how b or 490 was the y intercept now 2 is where m is, 2 is the slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1slope tells you the change in y for change in x a slope of 2 means that for 1 change in x we go down by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay sure! another way to do this would be to find any 2 points from your given equation and just connection

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for example we found a point (0,490) by setting x=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can find other points by setting x = anything you want

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1generally though, what people do is find the y when x=0 and find the x when y=0 so for your equation y=2x+490 we set x=0 and get y=2*0 + 490 =490 so one point is (0,490) For the 2nd point we set y=0 0=2x+490 now we solve for x 2x=490 x=490/2 =245 (245,0) is other other point dw:1435269561978:dw
