Please help :( The slope of line JD is 1/4, J has coordinates (10, -4), and D has coordinates (6, y). What is the value for y?

    m = Δy/ Δx ( y + 4) / ( 6 - 10 ) = 1/4 => y = ...? Can you fill in the blank

    well, i got as far as to: y + 4 / -4 = 1/4 but I'm not positive what to do after that.

    -> y + 4 = -1 Can you finish it now?

    like what exactly do I have to do from: y-4/-4 = 1/4?
