## anonymous 3 years ago write an Equation for the line (0,-3) (6,-5)

1. anonymous

all you need is the slope, since you know the $$y$$ intercept is $$-3$$

two point form :)

hmm ...Satellite's explanation is more easier in this case

from 0 to 6 is right six units from -3 to -5 is down two units over 6, down 2, slope is $$-\frac{2}{6}=-\frac{1}{3}$$

5. anonymous

now put $y=mx+b$ with $$m=-\frac{1}{3}$$ and $$b=-3$$

6. anonymous

y=-1/3x-3?

7. anonymous

yes
