Question
A group of students went on a hike and measured the change in elevation over the length of the trail. They plotted these data on the graph shown below. They wanted a shorthand way to describe the line that represents the trail. Which slopeintercept equation describes the line? y  intercept = (0,2) slope = 1 A. y = x + 2 B. y = x  2 C. y = x + 2 D. y = x  2

The correct answer for this question is this one: "y = x + 2"
y  intercept = (0,2) slope = 1
y = mx + b
2 = 1 (0) + b
b = 2
so the equation of the line is
y = x + 2
Hope this helps answer your question and have a nice day ahead.
