Write the equation of the line that passes through (1, 5) and (–2, 14) in slopeintercept form.
y = 3x + 2
y = 3x + 8
y = –3x – 2
y = –3x + 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first we have to find the slope by using the slope formula slope(m) = (y2  y1) / (x2  x1) (1,5)....x1 = 1 and y1 = 5 (2,14) ...x2 = 2 and y2 = 14 now we sub slope(m) = (14  5) / (2  1) slope(m) = 9/3 slope(m) = 3 now we use y = mx + b we now know that the slope(m) = 3 you can use either of your points...I will use (1,5)...x = 1 and y = 5 now all we have to solve for is b, the y intercept so lets solve for b y = mx + b 5 = 3(1) + b 5 = 3 + b 5 + 3 = b 8 = b so our equation is : y = 3x + 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Anne has a total of 3,500 golf balls at home. She loses some golf balls when she goes out on the driving range daily. The number of golf balls, h(x), can be represented by the function h(x) = –150x + 3,500, where x is the number of days she plays golf. Suppose 3,500 changed to 4,000. What does this mean in the context of the problem? Changing 3,500 to 4,000 means the initial number of golf balls decreased. Changing 3,500 to 4,000 means the initial number of golf balls increased. Changing 3,500 to 4,000 means the daily number of golf balls lost decreased. Changing 3,500 to 4,000 means the daily number of golf balls lost increased.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Write the equation of the line that passes through (–1, 5) and has a slope of 3 in pointslope form. x + 1 = 3(y – 5) x – 5 = 3(y + 1) y – 5 = 3(x + 1) y + 1 = 3(x – 5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Initial number of golf balls increased. you see, she started with 3500...and it went up to 4000 ===================== (1,5)....slope(m) = 3 now we use pointslope formula y  y1 = m(x  x1) (1,5).....x1 = 1 and y1 = 5 m = 3 y  5 = 3(x  (1) y  5 = 3(x + 1)
