If I have an equation, q(x) = x, and I have to identify what the graph of that would look like, isn't it just going to be a straight line? There are two straight lines to choose from -- one is horizontal across the x-axis on the 1, and the other is horizontal across the x-...

How do I find the y-intercept from a table? I know if the table has the x value as 0, and it gives the y value, then that is the y intercept coordinates. But I'm talking about if it doesn't show a zero value for x. So for example, if my table is something like this: ...
