Chapter 5 - Linear Functions - 5-3 Slope-Intercept Form - Practice and Problem-Solving Exercises - Page 311: 57


slope: 2-a y-intercept: a

Work Step by Step

Since the standard form of a linear function is y=mx+b, where m is the slope and y is the y-intercept, lets look for values that correspond with these equation in our problem. It turns out that 2-a is our slope because that is the expression that is multiplied with x and "a" is the y-intercept because that is the constant that is being added to the equation.
