Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large m = \frac{y_2y_1}{x_2x_1}\] \[\Large m = \frac{74}{6(3)}\] \[\Large m = \frac{74}{6+3}\] \[\Large m = \frac{11}{9}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and plug them into the point slope form \[\Large y  y_1 = m(xx_1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do I find the y intercept?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large y  y_1 = m(xx_1)\] \[\Large y  y_1 = \frac{11}{9}(xx_1)\] \[\Large y  4 = \frac{11}{9}(x(3))\] \[\Large y  4 = \frac{11}{9}(x+3)\] In Step 2, I plugged in the slope In Step 3, I plugged in one of the given points. In this case, I used (3,4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1also you'll have to distribute the 11/9 through

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1as for standard form, you have to convert to Ax + By = C form
