I got some whacky answer such as:
y=8/9x-1
This is wrong and I need some help.

OK. so, y=mx+b
You have an (x,y) and are given an m. So you need to find b. You did that?

Well, my first step was in doing this: y-(-6) = 8/9(x+7)

Ok, I'll see what I can do. Can I just like multiply straight across?

For that 7/1, yes.

All numbers are fractions. The 1 just hides.

Yeah, I knew that. I got a mixed number: 6 2/9

Is there a way to like work without these fractions?

Not really, but fractions are your friend!

Yes, definitely....

OK, so, as a mixed number, what would you get if you then move those over to not be with the b?

Subtract?

Yes. You have to subtract it from both sides.

No. You dealth with the 8/9x, you do not know the b.
-6 = 6 2/9 + b

See, you replaced the m, x, and y. You are finding b.

Ok, lemme do it and see what I get...

Would this be the correct step before I do any of the subtractions?
-6 - (-6) 2/9

-6 - (-6) = -6 +6 = 0, which is incorrect.

So wait, I'm so confused.

It would be -6 + -6?

So what do you get when you simplify that?

Umm.... I don't know haha. This is terrible. I hate fractions!!!!

It's getting to the point where I'm about to blow up!!

-12? I'm guessing....

So my slope-intercept would be:
y=1/8x -12 2/9?

THANK YOU JESUS I GOT THIS RIGHT!!!

Yah, that is it.

Thanks, Eric!! It really does look like I'm in love with fractions. Ughgh.

Oh!!! Ok. That's better!! Thanks!!

Not to offend you or anything like that, I was wondering why you started off with -6 = 8/9*7/1 +8...

I didn't. It is +b. Not +8.

Ohhh!!!! Cuz I did it some other way and I got confused.....

Hehe. Not nice=) Just Kidding! But anyways.. I see where you're getting that "loved math" from.

Ohhh!!! Makes total sense. Went into depth with it! Thanks alot!!! I really appreciate it!!
