Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hint when two lines are parallel their slope are equal...(they have the same slope) equation of a line ==> y=mx+b when m=slope and b = yintercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1points (2,12) m=5 y=mx+b 12=(5)(2)+b 12=10+b 12+10=b 2=b yes y=5x2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. I need help with this one . How do i solve it ? Find the point at which the line f (x) = 2x + 5 intersects the line g(x) = − 3x − 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to find where they intersect we equate the two function and solve for x ... 2x+5=3x5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how did you get those points ? I know my graphing. But did u pick the main points ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first i found the intercept for both function to see when y=0 what will x be well the y intercept is already in the function y=mx+b where b=yintercept
