What is f(0)?Answer by nerdybill(6959)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!f(x) has slope-2/3 and contains the point f(-3)=0. What is f(0)? . slope intercept form of a line: y = mx + b to find 'b', plug in the given info from the problem: m is -2/3 y is 0 x is -3 . y = mx + b 0 = (-2/3)(-3) + b 0 = 2 + b -2 = b . So, our equation of the line is: f(x) = (-2/3)x - 2 . To find f(0), plug it in: f(x) = (-2/3)x - 2 f(0) = (-2/3)0 - 2 f(0) = -2 (notice, this is the same as 'b' (y-intercept) found earlier)
