Write an equation in pointslope form for the line that passes through one of the following pairs of points (you may choose the pair you want to work with). Then, use the same set of points to write the equation in standard form and again in slopeintercept form. (5, 1), (–3, 4)

Ok. Well lets start by asking you this, do you know how to find the slope between two points?

Zombii Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
No not exactly..

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok first off we need to use y2y1/x2x1 and its easy to figure out using it
 one year ago

Zombii Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Ok. Thanks, I'll try to figure this out.
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and that formula is used to find out the slope
 one year ago

laihei Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
This one will be a negative slope as well.
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
point slope form is yy1=m(xx1) but we have to figure out the slope intercept form first for this one
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and then when you got both of these 2 then its easy to figure out standard form
 one year ago

Zombii Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
would the fraction be 2/5?
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
let me check
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
umm no its going to be 3/8
 one year ago

Zombii Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
How did you solve that?
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
using y2y1/x2x1
 one year ago

Zombii Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Ok, I got it now.
 one year ago

Zombii Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So now what?
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now we have the slope we figure out slope intercept form and you have to use graph paper for that
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
plot both points and run a line through them
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and slopeintercept form is y=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y intercept
 one year ago

Zombii Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Can you help me out with that please?(:
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
use graph paper and see what you get :)
 one year ago

Zombii Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
How do I graph it?
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok take a peice of graph paper and make a large "+" in it and number the lines with 1's or 2's
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but if number it with 1's you have to go like this 1,2,3,4,5 and so on and with 2's: 2,4,6,8 and so on
 one year ago

Zombii Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Ok I drew one.
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now did you plot both points on the graph?
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now go through the line until you see the line go through the "y" line
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
x is the horizontal line on the "+" and y is vertical line of the "+"
 one year ago

Zombii Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
It passes through the Y line at 3.
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now you got your slope intercept form and point slope form: y=3/8x+3 and y1=3/8(x5)
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now standard form is left
 one year ago

savvers Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
well i got to go i hope you can figure this out
