Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you cant use this because you didnt know what is b (yintercept)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3y=mx+b is slopeintercept form. This is pointslope form. You use pointslope form. All you do is plug in the numbers. That's all you do. Look at what I drew it explains it all. M is the slope and (x, y) is the point given.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First, we find the yintercept. 1 = 6(5) + b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Once you solve for b, you have your slope (m=6) and yintercept. I calculated it and found b= 130 = 31 y = 6x + (31) therefore, y = 6x 31

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do what Kymber did. That's another way to write the equation of a line. You end up with the same result.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3It says "pointslope form", that is not y=mx+b. The answer choices you gave are in pointslope form. I don't know why Brinethery is talking about slopeintercept form.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is point slope form: http://www.freemathhelp.com/pointslope.html Exactly what Kymber did.
