This is bothering me. Should the answer be y=x+3 because the slope is going down down three and over to the left three meaning it'll be 3/3=1 aka x?
Here is the graph:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought I had to go up three because of the yint and then come down from there

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that +3 is where you start on the y axis you go up 1, to the right 1 to jump to the next point the slope is actually +1 and not 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1always move from left to right we move 1 unit up (rise) and 1 unit to the right (run) which is why slope = rise/run = 1/1 = 1
