Steven recorded the growth of a plant over 10 wk for his science project. He made a graph that shows how much the plant grew each week. The plant was 2 in. tall when Steven started his project. At week 5, the plant was 8 in. tall.

    i'm thinking this is the answer y = 6/5 x +1.2

    slope = 8 - 2 / 5 - 0 = 6/5 = 1.2 (basically meaning that m = 1.2) y-intercept: b = 2 y = mx + b so, y = 1.2x + 2 you're correct :) good job and sorry for my slow reply
