sum1 help with my test asap Write the equation of a line in slope-intercept form that has a slope of -2 and passes through the point (2, -8). (Points : 2) y = -2x - 4 y = -2x - 8 y = -2x + 18 y = -2x – 12

    point-slope is y - y1 = m(x - x1)

    yes, and now "solve for y" to get it into slope-intercept form

    for the last one, we distributed, correct? just do the same thing with this one. 1/2 times x is 1/2x and 1/2 times -8 is..?

    ok. let's take this by steps starting with what we started with y - 3 = 1/2(x - 8) y - 3 = 1/2x - 4
