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 y-intercept is 6. What is the equation of the line in slope-intercept form? *y=6 *y=6x *y=x+6 <my answer

    What does a slope of 0 do to the equation?

    The zero slope indicates a horizontal line. Is this what you are asking?

    When 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?

    So it passes through (0,6) yes?

    That I think is what is confusing me as well...

    Same intercept but slope of 2

    Relooking 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?

    Okay so you mean (2,6)?

    Define slope for me in your own words

    it's the rate of the change in a line

    If your variables are x and f(x), what does slope mean?

    Slope intercept form is given by:\[ y=mx+b \]We replace \(m\) with the slope and \(b\) with the interecept.

    Yes, I have that formula as well, but think learning from scratch right now is wise.

    y=mx+b y=0x+6 (0 times anything is zero which cancels that out) y=6 Yes?
