Slope Intercept formula: y=mx+b

- anonymous

ik that obviously but idk to do with the points and the equation

- anonymous

Well if you obviously knew that then you would of known that the m is 1/2 and the b is -2. Then -5 is x and -2 is why. You have to put them in Slope intercept form.

ok i got 8?

- anonymous

i think your question is missing a word

- anonymous

yea its parrel ot the line

- anonymous

Alright.
you see the slope of y=1/2x-2 is 1/2, right?

- anonymous

wait? how is it 1/2?

- anonymous

Slope intercept form
y=mx+b
m is the slope

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

First use Point-slope form:\[y - y _{1}= m ( x - x _{1})\]
If its parallel, it has the same slope, so m will be 1/2
The points will be (-5,-2), where Y1= -2 and X1= -5
Just plug these in, and isolate the y term on the left side to get slope-intercept form.

o ok lol i did then but then i solved it. i wasn't supposed to solve it?

- anonymous

nevermind did the math wrong

- anonymous

Can you tell me what you get?

- anonymous

i got -2=1/2+-2

- anonymous

1/2x*

- anonymous

You need to keep the x and y in there, and twhen you plug in in, it should look like: \[y + 2 = 1/2 ( x +5)\]

- anonymous

isn't that point slope form?

- anonymous

Yes, but in order to get to slope int form, you need to start here, and then change to slope int form

- anonymous

Can you distribute the right side out?

- anonymous

yes 1/2x+2.5

- anonymous

Ok so now you have y + 2 = 1/2 x + 2.5
Now carry over the 2 to the right side

- anonymous

y=1/2x+1/2

- anonymous

Thats the equation in slope int form

- anonymous

o ok thank you that really helped for my geom. final

- anonymous

No problem
