Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3well, we can start with the equation yy1 = m(xx1) where m = slope and (x1,y1) is the point (3,2) plug in your numbers and tell me what you get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3uh, not quite (x1,y1) = (3,2) means x1 = 3 and y1 = 2, and we leave x and y alone, giving us: y+2 = 4(x3) with me so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3now we convert this to slope intercept form (y = mx + b) y+2 = 4(x3) start by distributing the 4 y + 2 = 8x  12 know how to finish from here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so your final answer is y = 8x  14 you are not supposed to solve for y in this scenario
