y - y1 = m(x-x1) plug it in and solve.
It just said put the equation
Okay captainmico remember from you last question what is the m value?
okay now can you write the equation subing in correct values for x,y, and m but leaving the b value alone?
not quite lets look at the coordinates they gave you (-3,14) these coordinates mean that if x=-3 then y=14
you already said that m=-2
so sub in the known values for x,y and m into the general equation y=mx+b
Or the x is in 2
...no look lets take this one step at a time lets look at the general equation again.y=mx+b this time sub in only the y value for the moment
Okay so -2x - 3=14
...look I will give you the substitution this time y=mx+b 14=-2*-3+b
can you solve that equation for b?
...can you post the steps you took in solving that equation for me?
20? I need to finish this asap
very very close look you multiply -2 and -3 together to get +6 so you have 14=6+b
what is your next step?
Yeah i minused it
so what is the value of b?
Normally I wouldn't tell you the correct answer like this but...nobody else is helping you with this one and I really have to go so b=8
