Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A. y = 7x  10 B. y = 7x + 10 C. y = 7x + 18 D. y = 7x  18

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you don't need to find the intercept, you just have to substitute any set of coordinates and the slope into the (y  y1) =m(x  x1) equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The y intercept form is just the name of the form which follows this format y = mx + b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So thats how you have to rearrange the equation once you sub your slope and coordinates in

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But you only need to plug in one set of the coordinates, so either (2, 4) or (1, 3) into x1 and y1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Just pick the set which looks to have the "easier numbers" so smaller numbers etc

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But it shouldn't matter which of the coordinates you choose

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so( x+3)=7(x1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yup, right hand side is correct, but with the left hand side, that should be a y, not an x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hahaha dw all good :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, now we can rearrange this equation to put it in the form of y = mx + b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so we want to move everything except the y to the right hand side
