Slopes

Given y = 2x – 4, choose the statement that accurately describes this line.
The slope is 2 and the y intercept is 4.
The slope is 2 and the y intercept is 4.
The slope is 4 and the y intercept is 2.
The slope is 4 and they y intercept is 2.
The equation of a line is
y = mx + b. Where m is the slope and b is the yintercept. So, you can see in your example that the correct answer is the second one.
And this is also an easy way to graph equations like your other question!
The yintercept is where the line crosses the yaxis, so you can put that poing on the graph, and then the slope is how steep it is...
BUT i JUST DON'T GET IT!Can you give me your email so that you can get a graph and show it to me?
Sorry, can't give out email.
Can you try to be more specific about what you're not understanding?
