Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the first step is to find the slop using... Slope m is [ (y2  y1) / (x2 x1) ]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1here is the formula [ (y2  y1) / (x2 x1) ] here's what we get when we plug it in dw:1433871153981:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so 3/4 is the slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then you use the pointslope form of an equation for a line and solve for y : (y  y1) = m * (x  x1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(y  y1) = (3 / 4) * (x x1)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes we also have y1 and x1... y1=2 x1=5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(y  (2)) = (3 / 4) * (x  5)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes! next we would simplify.. so.. y+2=[3/4 (x5) ]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so next we need to subtract 2 y+2=[3/4 (x5) ] y=[3/4 (x5 (2) ] y=(3/4x) + (7/4) This right here is called slope intercept form.. but we want standard form which is Ax+By=C to get that we need to add 3/4 to the y.... we would get y+(3/4)x=(7/4)....... are you sure??
