posted by gorden
hi, how would we find the y intercept , given slope of 11/2.54 and points (5,1.49). can you show me the steps so i can solve it. tnx
y=ax + b where a is slope, b is y intercept. Put the points in the equation...
1.49=11/2.54 (5) + b
solve for b.
x + y = 1 what does the graph look like
