Posted by on .

find the two ordered pairs of this equation.
y=5/3x+8

then give the slope and y intercept.

I know the slope is rise over run and is the y intercept 8?

This is the answer I got but I am still really confused how do I get my two ordered pairs this makes no sense to me!
Your Y-Intercept is 8. From there on the graph you'd go to Positve 8 and from there you'd either go 5 up and 3 to the right or 5 down and 3 to the left....Either one would give you points on a straight line.

  • math- CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP - ,

    Y = mx + B

    m= slope
    x= x coordinate
    y= y coordinate
    b= y-intecept

    thus, 5/3 is the slope and 8 is the y-intercept.

    There are lots of ordered pairs on a line.
    Two really easy ones are the x intercept and the y intercept.

    At x axis intercept, y = 0
    so
    0 = (5/3) x + 8
    x = -24/5
    so that ordered pair is (-24/5 , 0)

    At y axis intercept, x = 0
    so
    y = 0 + 8
    so that ordered pair is (0,8)
