## audrielynn Group Title how do i do this!? please help! Write an equation in slope-intercept form of the line that passes through (4, 8) and (0, -2). Answer y = 5/2 x - 2 y = -5/2 x + 8 Y = 2/5 x - 6 y = -2/5 x + 4 one year ago one year ago

Well the formula is, $(y-y_1)=\frac{ y_2-y_1 }{ x_2-x_1 }(x-x_1)$

To find the answer you should use y = mx + b To find M use the formula: $\frac{ y2-y1 }{ x2-x1 }$ Then, to find B, use $b = y1 - mx1$ Finally, put it all together.
