Where does the 'm' come from in y=mx+cIn y=mx+c, I know that 'm' stands for the gradient of the straight line and the 'c' stands for the y intercept, but why 'm' and 'c'??? #3 20060822 05:07:19
Re: Where does the 'm' come from in y=mx+cMoveded. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #4 20060822 05:17:29
Re: Where does the 'm' come from in y=mx+cm may be connected with "multiply" or something IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #5 20060822 09:36:10
Re: Where does the 'm' come from in y=mx+cThe m comes from MathIsFun. #6 20060822 15:32:19
