Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jim_thompson5910, does that mean that it would be (9,3)??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jim_thompson5910 I think i understand, would it mean that it is (3, 9)? Substituting 3 for x then adding 3 to 9 would equal 6, plus 3 would make it 9 again? Is that correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4@hxj9314 all that I did was compare the general form `y = axh+k` with the specific equation `y = x+9+3`

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4think of it as `x = 1*x` since 1 times any number is that same number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hm. Thinking about it, if i plug in 9,3 to the equation it makes it y=9+9+3, making the y add up to the coordinate since y=3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4yeah if x = 9, then y = 3 so (9,3) is the lowest point as you can see in the graph at the link https://www.desmos.com/calculator/1gelnvft97

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4you can click on the lowest point to have the coordinates show up
