Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1xintercept 2 means the point is (2,0) so right your slope is (40)/(82)=4/6 or if you reduce 2/3 now checking your yintercept (second please )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[y=\frac{2}{3}x+b \text{ where } b \text{ is the yintercept } \\ \text{ we know the point } (2,0) \text{ is on the line } \\ \text{ this says when } x=2 \text{ we have } y=0 \\ \text{ I'm going to enter this point in to find } b \\ 0=\frac{2}{3}(2)+b \\ b=\frac{4}{3}\] which is what you also got but you just don't have it in reduced form
