If x1 and y1 is (2,2) and x2 and y2 is(3,2) what is the y intercept form? I'm confused on how to work the problem out step by step

  2. When x goes up from 2 to 3
    Y stays the same at 3. (the slope is in fact zero unless you have a typo)
    In general
    (y-Y1)/(x-X1) = slope = (Y2-Y1)/(X2-X1)
    here assuming no typo
    (y - 2)/(x-2) = (2-2)/(3-1) = 0
    so
    y-2 = 0 (x-2)
    y - 2 = 0 x + 0
    y = 0 x + 2
    y = 0 x + 2
    or simply y = 2 of course, since it is 2 with no slope up or down.
