## anonymous 5 years ago write an equation in slope intercept form of the line that passes through thhe point (-6,-5),(1,4)

1. anonymous

find the slope: rise over run then plug it into y= mx+ b form m= slope solve for b

2. anonymous

m= y2 -y1 over x2- x1

3. anonymous

ineed to know how to doo it step by step idnt knw hw

4. anonymous

ok use your points... and plug them in...$4--5 \over 1- -6$

5. anonymous

solve that... and tell me what you got.

6. anonymous

ok i got -1 over -5

7. anonymous

ok i got 9/7.... if you plug it into a calc. 4-(-5) = 9 and 1-(-6) i got 7

8. anonymous

o sorry i did it wrong u right ok what next?

9. anonymous

so that is M in your equation...

10. anonymous

so we are going to use the points (1,4) 4= 9/7(1) + B now solve for b.

11. anonymous

b=0?

12. anonymous

is b=0 right man

13. anonymous

ok you do (9/7) x 1 and then you bring that to the side where 4 is... by subtracting and that gives you b.
