**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 ...

**Help 2!!**

3. You are sliding a big cabinet down a truck ramp for a customer. You must maintain control of the cabinet because it is very heavy. There are 2 ramps in the building. The equation of ramp 1 is y = 2x + 7 and the equation of ramp 2 is y = 3 x + 7. Which is the safest ramp to ...

**Help!!!!**

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 ...

**Algrebra I**

1. Which line is the flattest (or is less steep)? Why? y = 5x -6 y = 5x + 6 y = x - 3 y = x + 3 I thought it would be the last one since it has the smallest slope Well, yes...but both the third and last equations have a slope of 1, and so have the same "steepness" (...

**Math!!**

HELP PLEASE!!!! 1.Write the equation of a line with the slope of -2 which contains the point (3,6) y= mx+ b y= -2x +b Put in (3,6) and solve for b. Then you know m and b in y=mx + b won't it be..0?? I think it will be zero. Are you a teacher? The question is 1.Write the ...

**Algebra HELP!!**

Write the equation of the line that contains the points (2, 2) and (-3, 12). Here is part of the answer. Can you identify the missing part? y = -2x + ___ I think it's 12 You've got the slope so use y-y1=m(x-x1) where (x1,y1) is either point. If you use (2,2), then y-2...

Does anybody speak French?Because I need help in it? post your question. Our French teacher will be along sometime this evening. OH ok I just needed help with indefinite and definite articles.are you in French? Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Let's ...

**Geometry HELP!!!**

What happens to the graph of the line y = 3x -2 when the equation is changed to y = 3x +6? What happens to the graph of the line y = 2x - 5 when the equation is changed to y = 5x + 6? On the first question: What happens to the graph of the line y = 3x -2 when the equation is ...
