Please, help (NO ANSWERS, PLEASE :) Choose the equation below that represents the line passing through the point (−2, −3) with a slope of −6. y + 3 = −6(x + 2) y + 2 = 6(x + 3) y − 3 = −6(x − 2) y − 2 = 6(x − 3)

    Hint: It must also have a slope of -6 or x will have a coefficient of -6 when placed in slope-intercept form.

    Also when the value of -2 is substituted for x, y will equal -3).

    Well lets look at C y-3 = -6(x-2) y-3=-6x +12 y=-6x + 15 Now substitute the value of -2 for x and determine if y=-3

    Do the same for D. You say you don't want the answer so you need to do the work.

    y − 2 = 6(x − 3) y-2=6x-6*3 y-2+6x-18

    y - 2 = 6x -18 y = 6x -16 That is D continued ............Is the coefficient of the x a -6 Noooooooo Try another.

    A? y + 3 = −6(x + 2) y+3=-6x+6*2 y+3=-6x+12 y=-6x+9

    y + 3 = -6(x + 2) y + 3 = -6X -12 y = -6x - 15 Substitute -2 for the x and solve for y, Y must be equal to -3
