Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just do the pattern in the formula point slope form y  y1 = m(x  x1). y =235x4137 do some factoring here

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y  y1 = m(x  x1). y  0 = 235(x  x1). find x1 using 235 and 4137 using division or factoring

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm not sure if this is really necessary, but if you split the 4137 into 2 numbers, you can find a nice multiple of 235, so it will make your division a little bit easier. \[\large y=235x4137\]\[\large y=235x3995142\]\[\large y+142=235x3995\]Then do what mark is suggesting, factor out the 235 from each term on the right :D \[\large y+142=235(x17)\] Just an idea! :) Looks like you're on the right track already though ^^ so don't mind me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes plug them in to the formula y  y1 = m(x  x1). y  0 = 235(x  x1).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14137 / 235 = 17.60425532 on this one we will have an excess of 0.60425532

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You don't have to split up the numbers if you don't want ^^ it makes it look nicer, but i don't suppose it's entirely necessary. Just leave your x1 term as a fraction like this. \[\large y0=235(xx1)\]\[\large y0=235(x\frac{4137}{235})\] If splitting up the 4137 into a number divisible by 235 is confusing you, then just do it this way :D
