Well the equation of a line in this case can be given by
They have told you that so
They have also told you the line shares a point with the parabola. This point is so
Now solve for and your done.
Use the form
m is slope
b is y intercept
Put in the equation:
We are given in the graph a point x=2 there is an interception with the graph
so or at that point.
Now you know the point (2,4) is on the graph.
put in 2 for x and 4 for y in the and solve for b:
now you are done!
Thank you so much for your help guys I really appreciate it. Now I am stuck on this problem. How would I find out the slope of it? I already plugged in the x and y intercepts it gave me into the equation y = x^2 + 1 and got the coordinate (square root of 7, 5). I'm thinking the top of the triangle is 10 and the right side might be 1 but I'm not quite sure. So that makes it a rise over run of 1/10. Is that the correct slope?
you have to do the rise/run based on the 2 points
first find the (x,y) of the 2 intersecting points
then use for the slope
as you have found
then just simplify
I got but double check this
