## anonymous 4 years ago If the slope is 3, then what is y in (5, y) (2, 2) ? myininaya!

1. UnkleRhaukus

11

2. Mertsj

$3=\frac{y-2}{5-2}$

3. Mertsj

Can you solve that?

4. anonymous

Yeah, I got to that part, but after that, I don't know how to solve it

5. Mertsj

Well after you find y, you are done because the problem asks what is y if the slope is 3.

6. anonymous

so how would you find it?

7. Mertsj

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

8. anonymous

how did you get that?

9. Mertsj

I subtracted 5-2 to get the 3 below y-2

10. Mertsj

Now you should multiply both sides by 3

11. anonymous

OH sorry haha. okay

12. Mertsj

$3\times3=\frac{y-2}{3}\times3$

13. Mertsj

$9=y-2$

14. Mertsj

$11=y$

15. Mertsj

Are we good?
