Question

Answer true or false to each statement. Explain your answers. If a line has a positive slope, y-values on the line decrease as the x-values decrease.

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 2The $y$-intercept of a line determines the intersection of the line with the $y$-axis, while the slope of a line determines the steepness of the line.

If a line has a positive slope, then this implies that the $y$-variable tends to increase as the $x$-variable increases and the $y$-variable tends to decrease as the $x$-variable decreases.

Thus the given statement is $\textbf{true}$.
