## anonymous one year ago Write the point-slope form of the equation of the line that passes through the point (-6,4) with slope -1 over 2. (no image, please help!)

1. Astrophysics

Well first find the slope (given), using the following formula: $m = \frac{ y_{2}-y _{1} }{ x _{2}-x _{1} }$ where your coordinates represent $(x_1,y_1)~~\text{and}~~(x_2,y_2)$ Once you manage to get that, plug in m and your first coordinates in the point - slope form: $y-y _{1}=m(x-x _{1})$

2. Astrophysics

There's extra information but you just need to know the point slope form which is $y-y _{1}=m(x-x _{1})$

Ohh okay thank you, I think I got it!
