**Graphs 2**

x = -3 y = 2 how about this?how do i graph it? Is this a single point? no it says that Graph numbers 4 and 5 on the same square of graph paper. Make sure you label each line. x = -3 y = 2 Others may be able to answer this better than I; however, x = -3 with no y value listed ...

x + 2y = -4 How do I graph this?can you please help? Assign values to x and solve for y or assign values to y and solve for x. Makre a table. X........Y 0........-2 2........-3 etc. I almost always assign a value of zero to Y, too, and calculate X. Y = 0; X = -4 i don't ...

**Help 6!!!**

6. What happens to the graph of the line y = 3x -2 when the equation is changed to y = 3x +6? What do you think happens...how do the slopes compare? The y intercept changes, does it move the line up or down?

**Help 4!!!**

Write the equation of a line whose slope is 6 and whose y intercept is -3. Y= slope * x + yintercept. You fill in the blanks. But how? Anonymous is telling you to use y = m*x + b where m is the slope and b is the y intercept. Use m= 6 and b = -3 Example: if the numbers had ...

**Help 3!!!**

Which line is the flattest (or is less steep)? Why? y = 5x -6 y = 5x + 6 y = x - 3 y = x + 3 Slope is the the coefficent of x. You have a choice here of two slopes: 1, and 5. Either of the two y= x + ? has the same slope. so is it the last one? either of the last two have a ...

2. The line y = 4x - 7 crosses the y axis at: (4, 0) (0, 4) (-7, 0) (0, -7) (0,-7). if u get a graphing calculator then u would be able to solve easily. Set x=0 and solve for y to get y = 4*0 - 7 = 0 - 7 so y=7 The coordinate is (0,-7)

**Algebra 1**

1. Which line is the flattest (or is less steep)? Why? y = 5x -6 y = 5x + 6 y = x - 3 y = x + 3 I think it's the last one! Parallel lines have the same slope. The first two are parallel lines with the steepest slope; the last two are parallel lines as well and would both ...
