**Question description**

zefram analyzed a linear relationship, found that the slope-intercept equation was y=3.5x+16, and made a prediction for the value of y for a given value of x. He realized that he made an error calculating the y-intercept and that it was actually 12. Can he just subtract 4 from his prediction if he knows that the slope is incorrect
