what is the slope intercept of (2,2)and (-1,5) what the answer

- farmdawgnation

So have you seen the slope equation? Because that's what you need. :)

i just need help to get the answer for my equation that i can up with y=x

- anonymous

that was my answer

- anonymous

y=x

- anonymous

help me

- farmdawgnation

No, you're looking for an actual number for this problem.
Ok, so the first place to begin is to figure out the actual slope. The equation for slope-
intercept is:
\[y=mx+b\]
We're looking for the B piece. So, we need to find m (the slope) first. Then we can use the slope-intercept form to find be.

Have you done any work with finding slopes of lines before?

- anonymous

i know that i just need to see if is right

- anonymous

i got y=x

- myininaya

no y=x is not right

- anonymous

that was my answer

- anonymous

why is my answer not right did i do something wrong

- myininaya

look at your slope

- anonymous

ok

- myininaya

recalculate that

- myininaya

you shouldn't get 1 but you should get the opposite of 1 for your slope

- anonymous

didnt know that

- myininaya

\[m=\frac{5-2}{-1-2}=\frac{3}{-3}=-1\]

- anonymous

i got 1 only

- anonymous

how did u get -1

- myininaya

-1-2=-3

- myininaya

3/(-3)=-1

- anonymous

i did that

- myininaya

\[y-y_1=m(x-x_1)\]
\[y-y_1=-1(x-x_1)\]

- myininaya

now enter in a point and add y1 on both sides

- anonymous

now i made something wrong

- anonymous

so it is y= -1x

- myininaya

\[(x=2,y=2)\]

- myininaya

enter in this point

- myininaya

\[y-2=-1(x-2)\]

- myininaya

\[y-2=-x+2\]
now add 2 on both sides

- anonymous

did
that

- myininaya

y=-x+2+2
y=-x+4

- anonymous

that the answer

- myininaya

that is slope intercept form

- myininaya

where -1 is the slope and (0,4) is the y intercept

- anonymous

so it is y= -1x

- myininaya

no
y=-x+4 is what i have
