Well, the posts that we make aren't going anywhere. You can post your work during (your) daytime when you're fresh, and then I'll see it during (my) daytime.ohh, wait. I wass up 2'o clock in hte night doing this and i somehow tough 1=y. really, staying up that late melts my brain... but what can i do? I live in eroupe and that's the only time the american conticent are awake (aviable at the computer, that is)...

No. I don't know why you say "the y inercept would be z-2". There's no z here! But you've almost got the number right, you just forgot to include the log. You should have gotten:ok so we get the equation:

y=2(1)+b

then; b is the y intercept.

so the y inercept would be z-2 (the 2 is the slope) or (5/9)-2?

that would mean that b=-13/9

[tex]b=\log_3\left(\frac{5}{9}\right)-2[/tex]
