It must be halloween or something Because m looks awfully

like a today We're not fooled This isn't mission impossible

After all since the given equations basically in slope intercept

form we know our slope is a and a equals

one fourth right That happens to be the slope in

case anyone was wondering there We're looking for a point

on the line Why equals one fourth ax plus three

So let's give process of elimination a shot here Plug

the coordinates of each answer choice into the lines equation

And let's just check the result What We're feeling a

little unimaginative today So let's start with the first choice

of a there Well if we use x equals to

that gives us why equals one four times two plus

three which equals one half plus three Well that value

is most emphatically not three So to come of three

is not online A All right Next up Three come

of five All right let's see Be here Plug x

equals three into the given equation that gets us y

equals one fourth times three plus three So that's three

force plus three And once again that's why value doesn't

mention the y value of the answer choice So keep

going moving on to four four So we try x

equals four one four times for well that's one plus

three that gets us a force So he asked the

y value of four matches the answer choice So the

given line passes through the point four four and the

answer is c a cz in middle c Yeah that's 00:01:42.944 --> [endTime] what it sounds like
