Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0does "4 over 3" mean \(\frac{4}{3}\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok use \[yy_1=m(xx_1)\] with \[x_1=6,y_1=1,m=\frac{4}{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Confused... But I will try it 61^1= 4/3(xx^1) ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i see you are a bit confused

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you do know that the answer you are supposed to get has an \(x\) and a \(y\) in it right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes I'm confused and no .That's why I'm asking for help .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it should look like \(y=mx+b\) for some \(m\) and \(b\)

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the \(x\) and \(y\) are variables in this expression \[yy_1=m(xx_1)\] they are the \(x\) and \(y\) in the answer the \(m\) and \(x_1,y_1\) are numbers @satellite73 showed you what those numbers are

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[y1=\frac{4}{3}(x+6)\] looks even better since \((6)=+6\)

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you are not done yet though, you still have to solve for \(y\) which takes exactly two steps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a) distribute the \(\frac{4}{3}\) on the right b) add \(1\) to both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hello penn?.?.Don't know who that is lol but Hi... A line passes through the point 2, 4 and has a slope of −7 . Write an equation in slopeintercept form for this line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0same as before \[y+4=7(x+2)\]

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what @satellite73 said, then you have to solve for \(y\) using the same two steps a) distribute on the right b) subtract 4 from both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A line passes through the point 7, 5 and has a slope of 2 . Write an equation in slopeintercept form for this line. Would it look like this ? y+5=2(x+7)

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the reason they were plus before was because each number was negative but the formula is \[yy_1=m(xx_1)\]

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so change those plus signs to minus signs

teller

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so each time it's a plus it will be a minus and when ever it's a minus it will be a plus?

teller

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so y5=2(x+7) or is y5=2(x7)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A line passes through the point −8, 7 and has a slope of 5/4 . Write an equation in slopeintercept form for this line. y+7=5/4(x+8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not quite there is one mistake in a sign do you see it?

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no that part is right

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1at the risk of repeating myself, it is \[\huge yy_1=m(xx_1)\] the minus signs are in the formula

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A line passes through the point −6, 1and has a slope of −5/2 . Write an equation in slopeintercept form for this line. Would it be y+1=5/2(x+6)

teller

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be y=5/2x16??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A line passes through the point 6, 1 and has a slope of 2. Write an equation in slopeintercept form for this line. so y1=2(x6)?? y=2x11??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0One more problem then I will be done with that subject.I greatly appreciate you for helping me ! A line passes through the point 4, 9 and has a slope of −4 .Write an equation in slopeintercept form for this line. y+9=4(x4) or is it y+9=4(x+4)

teller

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the final answer would be y=4x+7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A line passes through the point (4, 9) and has a slope of −4 right?

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[y+9=4(x4)\\ y+9=4x+16\\ y=4x+7\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is right, if that was the question

teller

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We are given that the line passes through the point −4, 9 . So, the equation must be true when =x4 and =y−9 . =−9+−44b We can solve this equation for the y intercept b . −9 =+−44b −9 =+−16b 7 =b We now write the equation of the line in slopeintercept form. =y+−4x7 Here is the answer. =y+−4x7
