## anonymous one year ago Write the equation of the line that passes through (–1, 5) and has a slope of 3 in point-slope form.

1. anonymous

A. y=3x+2 B. y=3x+8 C. y=-3x-2 D. y=-3x+8

2. anonymous

Point slope-formula: $y-y_{1}=m(x-x _{1})$

3. anonymous

(-1,5) is the$\left( x _{1},y _{1} \right)$

4. anonymous

And m=3

5. anonymous

Plug them in.

i some how ended up with y=8x

8. anonymous

Oh you shouldn't add 5 and 3x. :)

9. anonymous

What is 3(x+1)?

10. anonymous

11. anonymous

x+1 is just x so wouldnt it be just 3x?

You forgot to multiply 3 and 1. :)

14. anonymous

3 times 1 is 3 not 1 though

My work here is done. You should know the answer by now. :D

17. anonymous

now do i move the 5 over by adding it to both sides

18. anonymous

Yes!

19. anonymous

giving me y=3x+8?

20. anonymous

You got it correct! A click on the "best response" is highly appreciated. :D
