subsitute slope
and then find y intercept
Call point (5, 4) = (x1, y1), and call point (-2, 0) = (x2, y2) Slope = m = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1) The equation of the line is: y - y1 = m(x - x1)
he has point slope form
both can be used though
ok. thank u. :)
can u check if im doing it right because i feel like i messed up somewhere?
Sure. Show what you did.
i found the slope using m= Y2-Y1/X2-X1. i got 4/7
Correct, m = 4/7
then i plugged it in y=mx+b. so now i have y=4/7x+b.
i plugged in point (5,4) sonow i have 4=4/7x5+b
then i got 4=20/7+b.thats were im not sure if im right.
|dw:1359950617065:dw| Correct
so if i keep solving it the equation would be y=4/7x+1 1/7
|dw:1359950765775:dw|
|dw:1359950864531:dw|
i got 8/7 to but turned it into 1 and 1/7
You can leave it as 8/7. Your solution is also correct, but it's not usually left with a mixed numeral.
ok. thank u
