Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When an equation is in the form of y=mx+b (which is what you have) m=slope and b=yintercept, so yes, the yintercept is 10 c:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0look at it this way...the h = hours after midnight. so if you sub in 0 for h...0 hrs after midnight....you would get the temp at midnight. t(h) = 2h  10 y = 2h  10 y = 2(0)  10 y = 10 so that is the temp at midnight
