the Slope and the y-intercept of a Line

Solve each step below then click on "Show me" to check your answer. There is a graph at the bottom of the page that helps you further understand graphically the solution to the question shown below.
Step by step solutionBelow is shown the graph of the line given above. Use two points (whose x and y coordinatse are easy to read) on the graph of the line to calculate the slope of the line; it must agree with the slope found above. Check also the y-intercept which is the point of intersection of the line with the y-axis. (Change scales if necessary) |
