If the slope constant (b) in a linear equation is positive, then a graph of the equation is a line tilted from lower left to upper right. (True or false?)

To determine
Whether the statement “If the slop constant (b) in a linear equation is positive, then a graph of the equation is a line titled from lower left to upper right” is true or false.

Explanation

Given info:

The slope constant in a linear equation is positive.

Justification:

Reason for correct answer:

Generally the linear relationship between two variable is define as below,

Y=bX+a

Where the dependent variable is Y, X is independent variable, b is slope constant and a is the fixed constant.

When slope constant b is positive in the linear relationship then the dependent variable Y always increase that means graph of the equation is a line titled from lower left to upper right
