Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Looks you're wrongly assuming \(b\) is the x intercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2For a straight line, \(y = mx + b\), the x intercept can be worked by plugging in \(y=0\) : \[0 = mx+b \implies x = \frac{b}{m}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2therefore \(\frac{b}{m}\) is the x intercept, not \(b\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Since you want that equal to the slope, \(\frac{b}{m}=m \implies b=m^2\) and the equation of line becomes : \[y = mxm^2\] plugin \(m=y'\) and you're done!
