Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use the general form of an equation of a line:\[y  y_1 = m(xx_1)\] where y_1 is your given value of y, and x_1 is your given value of x. Plug the three given values into the equation and solve for y, giving your equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Plug 6 into where m is, so that you get \[y  9 = (6) • (x  8)\] after plugging each given into the equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my mind is fried from this pellet all day, so hen how do i multiply 6 with x8? 6x14?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Kinda, you have the right concept but just need to carry out the multiplication more carefully. y  9 = 6x + 48, which leaves y = 6x + 57.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Add 9 to the each side, so you'll get y  9 + 9 = 6x + 48 + 9, on the left hand it simplifies to y, and on the right hand it simplifies to 6x + 57.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Lol, don't worry about it. I don't really think there is an easy way of shortening it, but all you have to do is calculate 2^2 (which is 4), 3^3 (which is 27), and 30 x 40 (which is 1200). Add 4 to 3, and subtract 1200 to get your answer, which is 1,169 if I haven't made a silly mistake along the way. :P
