Write the equation of the line in Slope-Intercept form, Then graph the equation by using either the slope-intercept equation or by using x- and y-intercepts. The line contains points (5, 6) and (2, 6).

    First you need to find the slope

    It's alright. Now that you have the slope, you can use that plus one of your points to get slope intercept form. use: y-y1=m(x-x1) The (x1, y1) is one of your points and m is the slope. So plug those in

    1-y1=m(1-x1) ?

    Noo, m=slope and (x1, y1) is whichever point you wanna use. So well use (5, 6) y-6=0(x-5)

    When you distribute the 0 on the right it all becomes 0, then add the 6 and you get: y=6

    Alright, and there was kinda a shortcut to this one. You see on both the points your y coordinate is 6. Since its a line that means every y coordinate will be 6. So, the equation is y=6 Dunno if that helped or confused you. But im glad you understand the first part

    Yeah, I noticed that. This one seemed to be pretty simple actually.
