@precal that's slope intercept form.

3. precal

|dw:1359576467630:dw|just solve for b

4. poopsiedoodle

5 = 8 + _

5. quay388

is that right

6. poopsiedoodle

however, this is not point slope.

7. precal

@poopsiedoodle actually it is faster to use it

8. poopsiedoodle

I know, but he said point slope.

9. precal

most people do not execute point slope correctly

10. precal
