Write the equation of the line in SlopeIntercept form, Then graph the equation by using either the slopeintercept equation or by using x and yintercepts. The line contains points (3, 5) and (3, 8).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have already did this problem, just need to make sure I have done it right. 0 is the slope obviously because the line is always on the xaxis.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Slope is undefined, which means its a vertical line. So the equation is gonna be x=whatever the x coordinate always is. In this case x=3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright, thanks. Here it is. The line contains points (2, 1) and (0, 4).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, same as the others.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Alright, well if you notice, one of your points is the y intercept. So if we find the slope we can just plug those in and were done.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Alright, slope intercept form is y=mx+b where m=slope and b=y coordinate of the y intercept. So plug those in and what do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02 = 5/21 + 2 or something like that....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, all you have to plug in is m and b. y=5/2x+4
