Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Right.... and you know what x1 and y1 are since they gave you the coordinates. So plug it in.... yy1=m(xx1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2y+4=1/3(x6) *We must first distribute that 1/3 on the right side of the equation. y+4=1/3x+2 Now we need to make this equation into the slopeintercept form... so y=mx+b... so lets subtract the 4 from both sides. y+4=1/3x+2 4 4  y=1/3x2
