    So I understand Table of values and normal intercept methods. The one with 2 intercepts. Just not this one.

    So do you have to list the slope and y intercept ?

    ah ok this shouldnt be to hard lets start with y=-3/4x+2 We always start at 2 on the y axis (the one that goes up and down) |dw:1444000276733:dw|

    Slope equals rise over run

    Yes but in this case we go down 3 because it is negative

    Ok. So it is -1, 4. That is all my teacher requires. The base and the next. So for the next one, it would be 0,3?

    I did. 0,3 is the next interval for the second answer, right?

    Like the second point, after changing all of the stuff. The first point is 0, -1. After the adding and stuff it is 4, 0
