Which function below has the lowest y intercept?
g(x)
Al had two dozen donuts when he walked into the office, but every cubicle he passed, he lost 2 donuts.
h(x)
h(x) = 6x + 1
or..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I mean, is it y=24x2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y = mx + b where B is the y intercept so you're basically just looking for where the line intercepts the yaxis, and to me it just sounds like you're finding the lowest numerical value.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it's actually g(x) = 2x + 24 the slope is 2, signifying he loses 2 donuts per cubicle (x = # of cubicles he passes) the yintercept is 24, which is what he starts with

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, makes sense. Sorry

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1as Teddyiswatshecallsme posted, the equation I have is in the form y = mx+b m = 2 is the slope b = 24 is the yintercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So do I just look at all the B's and find which is the lowest?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Its important to note that f(x) is the same as y, and g(x) is just the changed form of f(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1with the graph, the yintercept is the point where it crosses the vertical y axis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so is h(x) the lowest? Since it's B is 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm pretty sure the answer is C but ha I'm not sure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah the graph has a y intercept of 2 (larger than h(x)'s y intercept) and g(x) has the largest y intercept of 24
