Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1they are asking you for the slope of the line or at least you need that first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1from 6 to 3 is right 3 units from 5 to 0 is down 5 units right 3, down 5, slope is \(\frac{5}{3}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now the math teacher way \[\frac{y_2y_1}{x_2x_1}=\frac{50}{6(3)}=\frac{5}{3}=\frac{5}{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so how is finding the slope going to give me the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then since it goes through the origin \((0,0)\) the point slope formula gives \[y=\frac{5}{3}x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1add \(5x\) to both sides to put it in standard form get \[5x+3y=0\]
