    the x-axis is before the y-axis

    A or D lets cancel out 2 options by just knowing this if the line is increasing then you will get positive slope if the line is decreasing then slope would be negative

    slope = rise over y-intercept is a point where line intersect y-axis so how many units it's going up from the y-intercept and then right ?

    like i said line is increasing so A B can't be the answer

    Take any 2 points that the line is passing through. I've taken (3,2) and (0,0). Then you use the standard line equation: (y-y1)={(y2-y1)/(x2-x1)}*(x-x1)

    Here: y1=2, x1=3, y2=0, x2=0.

    \(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @Houdini_Dragon the line does not intercept with c \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) with x what do you mean ?

    perhaps it is because of the x-axis

    y=mx+B is a slope intercept where m is slope and b is y-intercept x is variable with slope that supposed to be there

    u r right it is c, because the rise is 2, and the run is 3

    or as iphita7 mentioned you can pick two points and use formula to find slope
