Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2slope=y2y1/(x2x1) the point is the given (5,7)(8,6) x1=5 y1=7 x2=8 y2=6 plug in .. slope=m=(6+7)/(8+5) m=1/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2m=1/3 so use the point (5,7) x1=5 y1=7 y  y1 = m(x  x1 y+7=(1/3)(x+5) \[y+7=\frac{1}{3}x\frac{5}{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y + 7 = 1/3 x  5 or y + 6 = 1/3 x + 7 this is the answer I got after plugging everything in

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2y + 7 = 1/3 x  5/3 not only 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[y+6=\frac{1}{3}\left(x+5\right)\] 1/3 multiple for both x and 5
