these are the answers : y-1=6(x+5) y+5=6(x-1) y+1=6(x-5) y-5=6(x+1)

point slope form y-y1=m(x-x1) m=slope
anonymous
  • anonymous
y-(-1)=6(x-5) y+1=6(x-5)

there is only one set of numbers how can i find m?
anonymous
  • anonymous
slope is given in question see it
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh so m=6

any more question about this

am i using y=mx+b?
anonymous
  • anonymous
you cant use this because you didnt know what is b (y-intercept)
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok then what? k=mx?
kymber
  • kymber
y=mx+b is slope-intercept form. This is point-slope form. You use point-slope 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.

y-y1=m(x-x1)??

6(-5-5(1)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
First, we find the y-intercept. -1 = 6(5) + b
anonymous
  • anonymous
1-1(1)=6 5-51)
anonymous
  • anonymous
those two are appart of the sam equation..
anonymous
  • anonymous
Once you solve for b, you have your slope (m=6) and y-intercept. I calculated it and found b= -1-30 = -31 y = 6x + (-31) therefore, y = 6x -31
anonymous
  • anonymous
so we are using y=mx+b?
kymber

  • anonymous
um how did you find b?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do what Kymber did. That's another way to write the equation of a line. You end up with the same result.
kymber
  • kymber
It says "point-slope form", that is not y=mx+b. The answer choices you gave are in point-slope form. I don't know why Brinethery is talking about slope-intercept form.
anonymous
  • anonymous
This is point slope form: http://www.freemathhelp.com/point-slope.html Exactly what Kymber did.
