Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Plug it into the equation: (yy1) = m (xx1) as (2,1) = (x1,y1) and m = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you're just getting people to do your homework, this question is the exact same as the last one you asked. You know these people won't be here when it comes test time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so, 1= 1(2) +b right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3(y 1) = 1 (x (2) y  1 = 1 (x + 2) y  1 = 1x + 2 y = 1x +1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The equation we plug these in is: (y y1) = m (xx1) The given points are: (2, 1) which substitutes as (x1,y1) If we put it all together, we get: (y  1) = m (x  (2) Understood?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0equation is y=mx+b << u have (2,1), which is x=2, y=1, and m=1.... plug back in 1=1(2)+b, solve for b, u get b=3, then rewrite, y=1x+3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Now lets plug in for m as well, giving us: (y  1) = 1 (x  (2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3(y 1) = 1 (x + 2) is what it becomes when simplified.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3First: You forgot about the "y" before 1 = 1x  2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Second: Its y  1 = 1x + 2 (1x PLUS 2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(y 1) = 1 (x (2) y  1 = 1 (x + 2) y  1 = 1x + 2 <<<sign error y = 1x +1 << should be y=1x+3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0got cha, i think the equation y=mx+b is way easier to remember

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Hmm, but you have to begin with : (yy1) = m (xx1)
