I don't get this

Find the equation of the line given the following information:
m=UD, x=-5
And I have to find the equation.

Then it says:
Identify the slope and y intercept from the following equations:
y=8, m=___, b=___
I also have to graph it.

But if it's UD, isn't there no y?
Thanks

  1. m = UD
    X = -5
    Y = mx + b
    Y = UD5 + 0
    Y = UD5

    Y = 8 is a hor. line.
    b = 8 = Y-intercept
    m = 0 = The slope of a hor. line.

    Use the following points for graphing:
    (-4,8)
    (-2,8)
    (0,8)
    (2,8)
    (4,8)

    Note: Y is constant and does not vary;
    it remains at 8 for all values of X.























































    y =

  2. Correction: x = -5.
    Eq: Y = -5UD
