Two functions, P and Q, are described as follows:
Function P y=5x+3
Function Q The slope is 2 and the y-intercept is 4.
How much more is the slope of function P than the slope of function Q?
3 5 7 8
I was looking and i did not get this at all.
y=mx+b slope is m and y - intercept is b
The answer should be 2 shouldn't it?
Where are you getting 8 and 6 from
5+3 for function p
No you cannot add 5x with 3, they are different
oh well, see i don't get it!
the x is a variable, you can only add it with other variables which have just x, so you can do 5x+4x = 9x, but you cannot do 5x+125125, 5x+3, 5x+125125125125
The equations you are given are in the form of y = mx+b, this is the equation of a line, the slope is m here and b is the y intercept, look at my drawing above to see what the slope is in the equation.
LOL, i still don't get it.
Well I don't really know what you get or not get, if you specify what exactly you have troubles with.
y-intercept is 4 so would i add 5 +2?
2 = slope
I don't know why you are adding anything
OMG, this is why i hate moving! you move from SC to florida and they have completely different standards!!!!!!!!!
Your question is just asking you how much more is the slope of your function P from function Q
OHHHHHH it's 3!
OMG, sorry for All the trouble!
It's ok :)
Without the trouble you would not learn
