do you know what pointslope form is?
 one year ago

AriPottaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
because you have to put the information into pointslope form first before you can get it into slopeintercept form

YES. im just confused on now part b

y = 3x and what for slope form
 one year ago

AriPottaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what? pointslope form is y  y1 = m(x  x1)

AriPottaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you haven't done part b yet
 one year ago

AriPottaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
if we use the first ordered pair for our equation, we know that y1 is 2, x1 is 1, and m is 3. so y  2 = 3(x  1)
