Fixed bug in correct line plot, caused by reading wrong student answer box (must have had a part added)

Saved a checkpoint:
Made sure neither of the points lies on the $y$axis.
Split $a$ into two parts, since you need to work out the gradient before you find the $y$ intercept.
Reworded some of the advice a bit.

This was a bit of a mess, as the points A and B had originally been illogically ordered, and this had only been half fixed.
Part a) had mathematical expression gaps which should have been number entry, and I have added fractionNumbers simplification in the advice and displayed answer.
I've adjusted the axis ranges so that the intercept is always on the grid.
Chris Graham 3 years, 4 months ago
The points A and B should be switched; it doesn't make sense to describe the leftmost point as B, and in fact the gradient is calculated from A to B in the advice. There are places in the advice where $y_1y_2$ needs to be inverted.

RE the point below from Aiden, this is OK, it is giving the student the opportunity to explore the terms in the equation and how they relate to the graph. This sort of question is really for formative use.
Aiden McCall 3 years, 4 months ago
This is also true for all other questions of this nature.

Saved a checkpoint:
I have edited the main and advice to make sense and tweaked parts. There is a problem with the question that where you put y = mx +c you can write m in the gap fill and even when restricting the string it shows what m is on the graph so you can effectively 'cheat' this also works in the same way if you type in c. I cannot think of a way to fix this without the JSXgraph code and I don't know where abouts that is.

Thank you for the feedback Chris, I have done everything you've suggest4ed here as well as making the same changes to differenet versions of this question.
Chris Graham 3 years, 5 months ago
One more. If I do not attempt the question, but reveal the answers, then the advice refers to an absent green line. This is another good reason to put the correct plot in the advice.
Chris Graham 3 years, 5 months ago
Similar points to our earlier discussion:
This is a candidate for using the Numbas variables to set the jsxgraph axis limits. Move the block of code where you grab the Numbas variables in front of making the board, so that you have access to them. And then you can use them in the bounding box definition
boundingBox:[yb2,...]
or whatever is sensible. Don't forget you'll want the intercept to be on the board.Since you are only asking for the equation of the straight line through the points, you might consider creating a step with gapfills for the gradient and intercept, to allow the student to break the question down.
And you could add a second plot with the solution to the advice.
One final thing: on one run I had B at the origin. You may wish to avoid this as it makes parts of the advice obsolete.

When you need to change the way this part works beyond the available options, you can write JavaScript code to be executed at the times described below.
To account for errors made by the student in earlier calculations, replace question variables with answers to earlier parts.
In order to create a variable replacement, you must define at least one variable and one other part.
Variable  Answer to use  Must be answered?  

The variable replacements you've chosen will cause the following variables to be regenerated each time the student submits an answer to this part:
These variables have some random elements, which means they're not guaranteed to have the same value each time the student submits an answer. You should define new variables to store the random elements, so that they remain the same each time this part is marked.
This part can't be reached by the student.
