## Icewinifredd 3 years ago Please help me out asap! i can't figure this one out! argh! The x-intercept of a line is –5 and the y-intercept of the line is –2. What is the equation of the line?

1. Godsgirl

what equation are u trying to get?

2. Icewinifredd

the one with the x and y-intercepts. i just don't get it!!

3. Godsgirl

do u have any answers they give u??

4. Icewinifredd

no. this is what it says: The x-intercept of a line is –5 and the y-intercept of the line is –2. What is the equation of the line. how do i figure this out? I'm trying to redo my test for more credit since i failed this one!!

5. Godsgirl

whats the slope

6. Icewinifredd

doesn't say anything. That's all it says. THAT"S why I'm so confused!!

7. Icewinifredd

oh wait. it DOES have answers. sorry. Here they are, but i have to show work: 1.) y=-5/2x-5 2.)y=2/5x+2 3.) y=5/2x-2 4.) y=-2/5x-2

8. Godsgirl

well what you do is y-y,=m(x-x,) so you would get y+2=2/5 (x+5) Then you would get y+2=2/5x+2 After that you would subtract 2 from both sides Your answers should be y=2/5x

Its b
