True or False: The graph of y=2x+7 will pass below the origin.
Why is this false?
True or False: The graph of y=2x+7 will pass below the origin.
Why is this false?
y = mx + b
y-intercept is y = 7.
Generally, +7 is considered "above" the origin.
What if x=-20 then y would equal -33?
"pass below" implies x = 0.
On a highway, are you "below" a bridge when you are 20 miles from the bridge?
So are you saying it would have to be on the y axis?
Try graphing the line. Look at the picture. Compare the line with the location of the origin. What do you see?Originally Posted by srgdean
