    That ^ would be slope intercept form..

    What you suggested about is a good way to find slope intercept form..

    to find slope intercept, but it is easier to use point-slope and THEN get slope intercept

    so if I used point slope it would be y=-7/9(x--3)+5

    oops. its suppose to be -3. sorry i typed it wrong. Whatever I'm so lost. I'll just do it the way I typed. I just don't understand point-slope. But thanks for trying to teach me. I'm so dumb.
