Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1LOL The equation of the line, in general form, that passes through the point (1, 1) and has a yintercept of 2 is y=x+2, or y=2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The yintercept is but a notable point, but that point has to also belong to the line and the yaxis, which is an useful tool to find equation of lines. So, we will just find the slope of the given point and the yinterception of the first line and hopefully use the pointslope formula in order to find it's equation: \[m_1=\frac{ 64 }{ 0(2) }\]
