 Question 50802: I need to write an equation in slope-intercept form that satisfies each condition; then graph. I am given only that the x-intercept = -4 and the y-intercept = 4. I looked up the definitions of x-intercept and y-intercept. And reading in my textbook I see the formula of y = mx+ b. In that formula I understand that m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. But what is the x-intercept in this formula?? Thank you and I hope tonight is possible for an answer? Click here to see answer by Earlsdon(6287)
