Write an Equation in slope intercept, point slope, or standard form for the line with the given information. Explain why you chose the form you used.
A. passes through (1,4) and (5,2) B. Slope 2 intercept 4 C. has an x intercept of 6 and a y intercept of 3 D. Passes through (1,2) with slope 5/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Subtract the y values and x values, then divide the remaining y/x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So for A. (1,4) and (5,2) (24) and 5(1) so 2/4=....1/2 so the slope for the points (1,4) and (5,2) is 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now pick any of the points, either (1,4) or (5,2) and using the slope that you just found, write an equation for the line. You will use the point slope formula.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So I'll pick the point (1,4) and with the slope 1/2 write the following formula y4=(1/2)(x(1).....y=4=.5(x+1)....This will be the answer for A
