Start with y - y1 = m(x - x1) which is point slope form and plug in m = 6 (the slope) and (x1, y1) = (5, -1), which is the given point

so would be y-1=6(x-5)?

You have a -1 for your y so you have to subtract a negative number, which is adding a positive number.

y-(-1)=6(x-5) and then simplify the left side.

so would it be a?

keep in mind that subtracting a negative is like adding ex: 2-(-3) = 2+3 11-(-7) = 11+7 x-(-z) = x+z

ok so it would be y+5 correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i mean y+1 ?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yes y-(-1) turns into y+1
