What is the equation of the line, in pointslope form, that passes through the points (3, 1) and (6, 8)?
y + 8 = 3(x  6)
y  8 = 3(x + 6)
y + 8 = 3(x  6)
y  8 = 3(x + 6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have the slope, so now you can plug it into: \(\sf y – y_1 = m(x – x_1)\) m=slope \(\sf (x_1,y_1)\) is a point what is the slope again?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\sf (3, 1)\) and \(\sf (6,8)\) are both in the form of \(\sf (x_1,y_1)\) substitute any point into the equation.
