## xRAWRRx3 3 years ago 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?

1. Chlorophyll

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

2. xRAWRRx3

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

3. Chlorophyll

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

4. xRAWRRx3

how'd you get that?

5. Chlorophyll

-4/4 = -1

6. xRAWRRx3

and how'd you get that?

7. xRAWRRx3

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

8. xRAWRRx3

oh, so y would be -5?

9. xRAWRRx3

wouldn't it be y +4 = -1?

10. Chlorophyll

Yep, x = -5 !

Thank you SO much x) you helped me a lot :)

Thanks xD I'm a very open person so I just ask what I need to ask LOL I hate not knowing or understanding things x)

Sometime it's tough to report to god that I've done a good deed today :P

15. xRAWRRx3

LOL I'll send an extra thought to him for you ;) LOL

16. Chlorophyll

Nice =)
