from the equation y=1/4 x +4 what is the slope of that line? (hint: In the form y=mx+b : m is the slope)
anonymous
  • anonymous
the slope is 1/4 so the new slope would be -4

im having trouble on how to find the b of the new equation

@MrNood do you know how to do that ?
MrNood
  • MrNood
ok so you have the new slope so the equation of th enew line would be y = -4x + b but you know that the point (-2,6) lies on the line so when x=-2 y= 6 so put those 2 numbers in the equation = and you will find b

okay so 6 = -4 * -2 + b 6 = 8 + b b = -2 Is that right @MrNood
MrNood
  • MrNood
check it by putting it back into the equation .... (it looks right to me...)

  • anonymous
so the final answer would be y = -4 x - 2 right?
