m=the slope To find b: substitute the slope and the point and then solve; like: 3=m(12)+b

1/4 is the slope
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes so that gives us y=1/4 +3

Just like the last one we need to start off with the formula \[\huge~y-y1=m(x-x1)\] 1/4=m 12=x1 3=y1

the last one we did was wrong too for some reason
pooja195
  • pooja195
hmmm :/ \[\huge~y-3=1/4(x-12)\]
pooja195
  • pooja195
distribute 1/4 * x =? 1/4 * -12 = ?

-3
pooja195
  • pooja195
\[\huge~y−3+3= 1 4 x−3+3 \]
pooja195
  • pooja195
we add 3 to both sides and then everything cancels and now we are only left with y=1/4x

^that should be correct
