## Notamathgenius 2 years ago write an equation in slope-intercept form of the line that passes through the given points (3, -2), (6,1) @ajprincess Same way?

1. ajprincess

have u found the slope using that formula?

2. Notamathgenius

No c: i know nothing about slope intercept I dislike it a lot -_-

3. ajprincess

slope is found using the formula $slope~m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$ $m=\frac{1-(-2)}{6-3}=?$

4. Notamathgenius

i got -1.666666667

5. ajprincess

nw can u find m?

6. ajprincess

@notamathgenius

7. Notamathgenius

hmmm

8. ajprincess

sure?

9. Notamathgenius

Yea I am lost, i keep looking back at the question -_- grr i hate math

10. ajprincess

wht is 1-(-2)=?

11. Notamathgenius

3

12. ajprincess

good:) nw what is 6-3=?

13. Notamathgenius

3

14. ajprincess

good:) 3/3=?

15. Notamathgenius

1

16. ajprincess

good:) so what is m=?

17. Notamathgenius

1 :D

18. ajprincess

yup. good:)

19. Notamathgenius

Oh boy math is fun -_- not

20. ajprincess

nw let us consider a point (x.y) on the same line. then $m=\frac{y-y_1}{x-x_1}$ $1=\frac{y-(-2)}{x-3}$ $1(x-3)=y+2$ Slope-intercept equation is \$y=1(x-3)-2$

21. Notamathgenius

I see now :) thanks a bunch

22. ajprincess

welcome:) remove the parentheses and simplify:)

23. Notamathgenius

WIll do :D

24. ajprincess

good:)
