anonymous 3 years ago "Has an x-intercept of 6 and a y-intercept of 3." Could someone write that equation in slope-intercept, point slope, or standard form?

1. anonymous

y = 1/2x + 3

2. anonymous

That's slope-intercept form

3. anonymous

Thank you so much! Could you show me how you got that?

4. anonymous

sure slope-intercept form is y = mx + b m is the slope b is the y-intercept with the x intercept and the y intercept I got a slope of 1/2 then I just inserted it in and got y = 1/2x + 3 since there's a y-intercept of 3

5. anonymous

do you want me to explain slope?

6. anonymous

Sure, I'm not sure how to get the slope.

7. anonymous

ok the slope is change of y / change of x so the x-intercept is (6,0) and the y-intercept is (0,3) so 3-0/0-6 = 3/-6 = 1/-2

8. anonymous

BTW change it to y = 1/-2x + 3 I forgot it in the original answer sorry

9. anonymous

$y = \frac{ 1 }{-2 }x + 3?$

10. anonymous

yes

11. anonymous

Thank you!

No problem
