Re: y-intercept

Hi;

So the y intercept is 8.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: y-intercept

Start off with the general form y = mx + b.
