Do you know what slope intercept form is?

yes, when i did it i got \[y= \frac{ 1 }{ 2 }x+\frac{ 7 }{ 2 }\]

The slope is right...Checking the yintercept now...

You 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.

Either use (4,1) or (6,2) but don't mix and match

so 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

Either way.

because when i did it in point slope form like my teacher said i did not get one i got 7/2

Then you did it incorrectly. You found the slope m=1/2 Plug it in yy1=m(xx1) Don't forget to distribute yy1=mxmx1

add y1 on both sides y=mxmx1+y1

yeah i got it now. and one more question standard form is ax+by=c right?
 one year ago

victoriarose88 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay because my book said ax+by+c=0 and my teacher said ax+by=c

Go 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.

Your teacher will be grading you and it is their preference in what form they want the answer.
