Hi! Looking for some "virtual tutoring" with my open book assignments. Since I do my assignments in the middle of the night due to family/work obligations, I am not able to access my teachers when they are normally available&would truly appreciate any help that is offered to help me understand the material fully. Okay so for my 1st question, I am just looking to check it to see if I was correct with my answer&then if not, we can go from there.
The slope of a line is 0, and the yintercept is 6. What is the equation of the line in slopeintercept form?
*y=6
*y=6x
*y=x+6 <my answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The zero slope indicates a horizontal line. Is this what you are asking?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When looking at the equation I mean. The 0 would still show up in some way. If you had a slope of 2 instead what would the equation be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Relooking at this i think I may have put it into general form by mistake...slope form is y=k which would make it y=6?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so you mean (2,6)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Slope intercept form is given by:\[ y=mx+b \]We replace \(m\) with the slope and \(b\) with the interecept.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, I have that formula as well, but think learning from scratch right now is wise.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=mx+b y=0x+6 (0 times anything is zero which cancels that out) y=6 Yes?
