    \[\huge y-y_1=m(x-x_1)\] where m=slope (x1,y1)

    that is point- slope format slope -intercept y = m x + b

    I know, you can use the point slope formula to get slope intercept form...

    y=mx+b <---slope intercept form m=slope (x,y) since they already gave the y value which is 3 u just plug it into the equation m=-6 y=3 y=mx+b <---plug in the given info :)

    hate to but in don't want to confuse anyone but x = 0

    3 = -6*0 + b so b = 3 then y = -6x + 3

    Juan is saving money for a new car. He has already saved 200$ and plans to save $25 per week. This situation can be represented by the function f(x)=200+25x, where x is the number of weeks. How much money has Juan saved after 8 weeks?
