@itsjustme_lol can you plug in everything into that formula now?

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

y(4)=1/3(x6) y+4=1/3(x6) @itsjustme_lol do you understand that?

It is a negative being multiplied by a negative. That is something you should be familiar with.

i dont know how to solve that equation
 one year ago

MathLegendBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
y+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
