## anonymous 4 years ago What is the equation in point-slope form of the line passing through (0, 5) and (–2, 11)

1. lalaly

first find the slope, do u know how?

2. anonymous

no

3. lalaly

ok the slope is equal to$\large{\frac{\Delta y}{\Delta x}= \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}}$

4. lalaly

$=\frac{11-5}{-2-0}$

5. anonymous

Lala, we can further simplify it to: $= -\frac{7}{2}$ :P

6. lalaly

oops 2

7. anonymous

No it's $=\frac{11-5}{-2-0} = -\frac{6}{2}$

8. lalaly

$\frac{-6}{2} = -3$

y – 5 = –3(x + 2) y – 5 = 3(x + 2) y – 11 = –3(x – 2) y – 11 = –3(x + 2) were the options though :/

10. anonymous

That's the hardest step lol

11. lalaly

yeah wer not done, i just showd u how to find the slope

12. lalaly

Do u want to learn this or do u just want the answer?

13. anonymous

Who wants to learn? :P here is the answer : $y – 11 = –3(x + 2)$

14. lalaly

Lol Ok FOOOL :P

15. anonymous

haha :D

thank you both *Bows down*
