1. Answer: the correct options are B, D and F

Step-by-step explanation:

The equation of a straight line can be represented in the slope-intercept form, y = mx + c

Where c = intercept

m = slope = rate of change

Looking at the equations given, the three that apply are

B) slope = 7

y intercept = 4

It has a greater rate of change than a linear function with a slope of 6 and a y–intercept of 3

D) y = 9x + 1

slope = 9

y intercept = 1

It has a greater rate of change than a linear function with a slope of 6 and a y–intercept of 3

F) y = 8x + 5

slope = 8

y intercept = 5

It has a greater rate of change than a linear function with a slope of 6 and a y–intercept of 3
