- A what?
- I dunno, you tell me...
- Hey, Johnny, what's a y-intercept?
- Y-intercept
- Oooooooh wait! I remember! It's where a line intersects with the y-axis on a graph!
- *sigh*
- I did the worksheet this morning, and I got stumped a few times, but remember, the slope is the rise over run, or the direction a line goes in! You should also remember what the x and y axes are (x is horizontal and y is vertical) on a graph. And remember! Linear lines are non-curved lines!
- The slope-intercept equation (y = mx + b) of this line is y = 2/3)x + 1.
- Here's how to do it:1. graph the y - intercept ( in this case it is 1) 2. look and graph the coefficient of x ( in this case it is 2/3x) The format to graphing these points are rise/run. rise: how many times to move up from the y - intercept Run: How many times you go to the right from the last point. ( in this case Rise = 2 and Run = 3
- When did you get smart Johnny?
- Mwah ha ha! I have prevailed in my mindchip to make a person know all about math! Soon I shall bring his brain to a CALCULUS level!
