Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The slope is equal to :\[\Delta y \over \Delta x\] then slope is: \[6(3) \over 48\] slope or m = 9/12= 3/4 Using the formula for a line, y=mx+b. we can take your given point (4,6) and plug in the values that we now have: 6=3/4 (4) +b solving for b, 6=3+b or b=3 the equation is y=3/4 (x)+3 that is known as the slope intercept form.
