You have a mistake right off the bat. 2x + y = 5 is not equivalent to y = 2x + 5.ttpp1124 said:Homework Statement::I have my answer in an equation, but since it asks for a point, should I simply leave it as b=1.386?

The equation for determining the point on a given curve is typically in the form of y = f(x), where x represents the input value and y represents the output value.

To find the coordinates of a specific point on a curve, you can substitute the x-value of the point into the equation and solve for the corresponding y-value.

No, in order to determine the point on a curve, you need to know the equation that represents the curve.

Determining the point on a curve allows you to understand the relationship between the input and output values, and can help you make predictions or analyze patterns in the data.

Yes, there are various mathematical tools and methods, such as graphing calculators, calculus, or algebraic techniques, that can aid in determining the point on a curve.
