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 (3, 5) and (3, 8).

    I 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 x-axis.

    Slope 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

    Alright, thanks. Here it is. The line contains points (2, -1) and (0, 4).

    And you want slope intercept form?

    Alright, 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.

    Alright, 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?

    2 = -5/2-1 + 2 or something like that....

    No, all you have to plug in is m and b. y=-5/2x+4
