Answer:
Slope: 1/2
yintercept: (0, 6)
Stepbystep explanation:
The yintercept is where the line intersects the yaxis which is (0, 6)
To find the slope, we can use the formula [tex]\frac{x2  x1}{y2  y1}[/tex] where each (x, y) is a different coordinate of a point on the line.
Plug any coordinates into the formula (ex. (0, 6) and (3, 0))
x1 = 0
x2 = 3
y1 = 6
y2 = 0
The order for the variables does not matter as long as you keep the coordinates together in the formula (ex. x2 and y2 can be x1 and y1).
Solve the equation
[tex]\frac{3  0}{0  6}[/tex]
[tex]\frac{3}{6}[/tex]
Simplifies to 1/2

Answer: 6 and 2
Stepbystep explanation:
Finding the yintercept of the graph is easy because the yintercept is the point at which a graph crosses the yaxis. It is represented by the coordinates (0,y), where y is the value of the yintercept. This means that we can find it without even calculating but by just looking at the graph.
From the graph, we see that the line intersects the yaxis at (0,6) so the yintercept is 6.
The slope, however, is harder to find. It is calculated by taking the difference in the yvalues of two points on the line and dividing it by the difference in the xvalues of those same two points. Remember, this can be any two points that the graph pass through.
So we can find the slope by calculating (6  0) ÷ (0  3) = 2 so the slope is 2
