Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you need the slope first do you know how to find it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"no" is a fine answer, i am only asking

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no you need slope, which is \(m\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0find it via \[m=\frac{y_2y_1}{x_2x_1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which in your case is \[m=\frac{16(8)}{17(12)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 8 over 6? which is 4 over 3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i get \(\frac{8}{5}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0next step is \[yy_1m(xx_1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can use either point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[y+8=\frac{8}{5}(x+12)\]will do

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no not 5, you have to use \(m=\frac{8}{5}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ooh okay, I understand

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then depending on the form you want, you can solve \[y+8=\frac{8}{5}(x+12)\] for \(y\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y= 8 + 12 ..? i think I did that right

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[y+8=\frac{8}{5}(x+12)\] as an x and a y in it they are the x and y in your equation \[y=mx+b\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you want to solve \[y+8=\frac{8}{5}(x+12)\] for \(y\) to get \[y=mx+b\] you need two steps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a) distribute the \(\frac{8}{5}\) on the right then b) subtract \(8\) from both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let me know if you can do that

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 128 is 4, that's all I got so far

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0step one is to distribute on the right i.e. distribute here \[\frac{8}{5}(x+12)\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by the distributive law, \[\frac{8}{5}(x+12)=\frac{8}{5}x+\frac{8}{5}\times 12\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or\[\frac{8}{5}x+\frac{96}{5}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now we have \[y+8=\frac{8}{5}x+\frac{96}{5}\] now subtract \(8\)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would I subtract 8 from 96 over 5?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[y=\frac{8}{5}x+\frac{96}{5}8\] right

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0compute \[\frac{96}{5}8\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you want decimal answer you would have \[y=1.6x+11.2\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0fraction answer \[y=\frac{8}{5}x+\frac{56}{5}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have choices or you just need some answer?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have choices and most of them have 8/5 in them but they also have 8/5 +(17)
