these are the answers : y1=6(x+5) y+5=6(x1) y+1=6(x5) y5=6(x+1)

am i using y=mx+b?

you cant use this because you didnt know what is b (yintercept)

ok then what? k=mx?

kymber Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
y=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.

First, we find the yintercept. 1 = 6(5) + b

those two are appart of the sam equation..

brinethery Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Once 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

so we are using y=mx+b?

um how did you find b?

Do what Kymber did. That's another way to write the equation of a line. You end up with the same result.

kymber Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
It 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.

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