    Jesse got $5 from his dad and he makes $2 each time he walks the neighbor's dog.

    Ok, so you need to make this statement into a y=mx+b equation

    Where b would be the y-intercept

    You can find the y-intercept by looking at the graph and seeing which point crosses the y axis. This point will always have an x coordinate of zero. This is another way to find the y-intercept, if you know the equation, the y-intercept is the solution to the equation when x = 0.

    You can still find this with no graph

    Look at the problem. We need to find what values would make up m and b in the y=mx+b equation

    5 over 2 is that the slope ?????

    No, the slope is something that constantly changes in the equation

    In your problem, what value could change and what value stays the same throughout the problem?
