Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, there are two nice equations to know for solving an equation of a line Point slope: yb = m (xa) Slopeintercept Form: y=mx +b For both you need the slope and a point the equation needs to pass through. For point slope, if you have slope 3 and Point A = (a,b) (or in your case (2,5)) y5 = 3(x2) In slopeintercept form, you plug in values of y & x to get b y=3x +b 5 = 6 +b b=1 y= 3x 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So Y=Mx+b is the normal equation of a line... so then just add 3 over 1 so it would be y=3over1x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0don't i have to go any further once i came to y=3x1?
