Write an equation in point-slope form of the line through the given points. Then write the equation in slope-intercept form. #11. (4,0), (-2,1) #12. (-3,-2), (5,3) #13. (-5,1), (3,4) Thats all they give you. And YES I do know the Formulas: Point-slope: y-y1=m(x-x1) Slope-intercept: y=mx+b Slope: m=y2-y1/x2-x1

    first.., find the slope using the third formula that you write.., then use point-slope formula to find the equation..

    m=y2-y1/x2-x1 (4, 0) (-2, 1) m=1-0/-2-4 m=1/-6 m=y2-y1/x2-x1 (-3, -2), (5, 3) m=3-(-2)/5-(-3) m=5/8 m=y2-y1/x2-x1 (-5, 1) (3, 4) m=4-1/3-(-5) m=3/8

    y-y1=m(x-x1) (4,0), (-2,1) y-0=(1/-6)(x-4) y-0= -0.16x+0.7 y=-0.16x+0.7 Yeah, I just finding the slope for all of them. :o)

    y1 and x1 just stand for the points. So (4, 0) is the point, so y1 is 0 and x1 is 4. That would the equation for the point-slope form for that set of points.

    but you have to write it in point-slope form?!

    Then, I guess you can just plug in the numbers into the point-slope form so it'd just be: y-0=(1/-6)(x-4)

    @Butterfly16 has write it in slope-intercept form slope-intercept form is y = mx+ c , No.., points (4,0) and (-2,1) are on the same line.., so just choose one of them..

    y-y1=m(x-x1) (-3, -2) (5, 3) y-(-2)=(5/8)(x-(-3)) y+2=0.625x-1.875 y=0.625x-3.875

    no, it depends, if you are adding a negative, its the same as subtracting, and its okay @MaeganR
