Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first we need the slope, because no matter what, if you want the equation of a line you need to have the slope do you know how to find ti?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, it's like the third day of school. My brain doesn't work yet! sorry ahah.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1from 6 to 9 in the x is right 3 units from 4 to 4 in the y is down 8 units right 3, down 8 slope is \[\frac{8}{3}\]

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now the math teacher way \[\frac{y_2y_1}{x_2*x_1}=\frac{44}{96}=\frac{8}{3}\] or \[\frac{4(4)}{69}=\frac{8}{3}=\frac{8}{3}\] either way

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok no matter, now we have the the slope, and we can use the"point slope" formula because we have two points to choose form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Everyone where I'm from starts in August. I know some places in California start later. so y=mx+b?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, thats not right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no that is the "slope intercept " form we are not there yet

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so 4  4 = 8/3 (9  6) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the x and y in the formula are the variables you see in the answer only the \(x_1\) and \(y_1\) are numbers (as well as m )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh. gosh ok. y+4= 8/3 (x9)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0subtracting a negative turns it into an addition basically, right?

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you should probably put it in "slope intercept" form aka solve for y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you know how to do that? takes the same two steps every time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Move the 4 to the other side?

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first distribute the \(\frac{8}{3}\) on the left

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yeah. so I multiply it or add it to the left?

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[y+4=\frac{8}{3}+24\] if my arithmetic is correct

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then don't "move the 4" subtract 4

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sorry, typo there i meant \[y+4=\frac{8}{3}x+24\] i dropped the x by mistake

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, where did 24 come? distributing the slope on the right side?

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{8}{3}\times (9)=3\times 8=24\]

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so now we are at \[y+4=\frac{8}{3}x+24\] subtract 4 from both sides and you are done

misty1212
