Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For the first equation, use the point slope formula and plug in the given data

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y+4=(1/3)(x6) >Now rearrange this if it is required. You can leave it like this since it is correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And for the second part, find the slope between the two points: (6,1) and (4,2).. And use one of the points to form the equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it has 2 b completely simplified and 4 the first 1 got y=1/3x6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It would have helped if you would spell out the words. And no, it is not y=1/3x6. Instead it is y=1/3x2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok I see what I did wrong and sry im trying 2 type with 1 hand and it takes longer so im using short cuts

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For the second part, can you find the slope between the two points?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The slope would be 1/2. Now pick either point and write the equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y2=1/2(x+4)> Now rearrange this and get y=1/2x+4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok thanks :) do you understand this problem : Write the equation of the line with an undefined slope, passing through the point (2, 5).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't understand how u can write an undefined slope

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0undefined slope means the line is vertical. Therefore, the equation for the line would be y=2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you don't do anything with the 5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=2 would be horizontal, so it would be x=2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05 is a point above the 2. Only the first variable matters, which is 2.
