Will Give Medal
Which function below has the lowest y intercept?
f(x)
graph going through (0, 5) and (2, 1)
g(x)
Kyle started the summer having read 3 books but plans to read 6 books per month over the summer.
h(x)
h(x) = 3x + 4
f(x)
g(x)
h(x)
The functions all have the same y intercept.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We know that linear equations have a slope (m) and yintercept (b): y=mx+b, where x and y are variables. One point for f(x) is <0,5>, where x=0 and y=5. Another point is <4,3>. So we have two equations and two unknowns. We then can solve for m and b: 5=m(0)+b4=m(4)+b Using the 1st equation, we immediately see that b=5. This is the y=intercept for f(x). Make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0saying that she "started" the summer reading 3 books, means that at x=0, y=3, using our equation notation: 3=m(0) + b. This immediately shows the yintercept for g(x).
