## anonymous one year ago Graph the line with the slope 1/3 passing through the point( -2,5)

1. anonymous

y=mx+b?

2. pooja195

Not thats slope intercept :3 $\huge y-y1=m(x-x1)$

3. pooja195

$\huge(x1,y1)$ $\huge~m=slope$

4. anonymous

so m would be 1/3 and x1 y1 would be -2,5?

5. pooja195

yep and now we plug it in :) $\huge~y-5=\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }(x+2)$ two negatives make a postitve thats where the 2 came from :) can u solve this now?

6. anonymous

would the answer be m=1/3 and b= 17-3?

@pooja195

8. pooja195

$\huge y=\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }x+\frac{ 17 }{3 }$

9. pooja195

Now u just graph that

10. anonymous

uhmm how exactly would I graph that
