Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, when i did it i got \[y= \frac{ 1 }{ 2 }x+\frac{ 7 }{ 2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You should retry to find the yintercept. It is incorrect. Start here: y=mx+b where m=1/2 y=1/2 * x +b Use one of the points gven to plug in for x and to plug in for y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if i were to show my work on a homework assignment i would find the slope and then put it in point slope form? or just plug it back into the equation in slope intercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because when i did it in point slope form like my teacher said i did not get one i got 7/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then you did it incorrectly. You found the slope m=1/2 Plug it in yy1=m(xx1) Don't forget to distribute yy1=mxmx1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0add y1 on both sides y=mxmx1+y1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah i got it now. and one more question standard form is ax+by=c right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay because my book said ax+by+c=0 and my teacher said ax+by=c

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Go with what your teacher said. Either one is fine. Both of those forms don't differ a whole a lot. All my math life, I have prefered the slopeintercept form.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your teacher will be grading you and it is their preference in what form they want the answer.
