As far as I can tell, either the problem is wrong or the system is looking for it in a specific format. You have the right answer, perhaps whatever program you're using needs it put in as an improper fraction such as -5/3 ?

o0k, thank you. i tried putting it in both ways, so the question must be wrong or somethingg.

i hate when that happens. i sit here trying to figure it out for so long, FOR NOTHING!

lol.

but again, thanks for helping me. - Jan 26th 2009, 09:08 AMmetlx
maybe the solution wherever you're looking is for the y intecept, which would be 5.

Books sometimes have these kind of mistakes in them. - Jan 26th 2009, 09:25 AMannabananzaa
