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

    yes so that gives us y=1/4 +3

    because "b" is the y-intercept

    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

    \[\huge~y−3+3= 1 4 x−3+3 \]

    we add 3 to both sides and then everything cancels and now we are only left with y=1/4x
