Check your post for correctness - then -hmwin said:I am trying to solve the following problem
A line contains the point (1,3) and has the same y intercept as y-5+2(x-1). What would the y intercept be here?
Just simplify your equation - then write it in the form of:hmwin said:Well, I used the formula y-y1+m(x-x1) with the ones being below the line.
That is not an equation of a line - be a little more careful
So, y-3+m(x-1)...but I need to know the "m" or y intercept.
Again the same mistake....
hmwin said:First of all, I looked back at my first post and may have made a mistake.
The formula was y-5=2(x-1)
Does this make a difference?
and would y be 2 ?No - did you read my response?
