Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A. 4x + 4y = 6 B. x + 4y = 12 C. 4x + 4y = 12 D. x  4y = 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay so this time, the only thing thats changed is the fact that you have no longer been given the slope, but remember you can find the slope with m = (y2  y1)/(x2  x1) or just rise/run

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And from there you can apply the same equation you had used earlier

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let (2, 2) and (6, 3) be (x1,y1) & (x2,y2) First find the slope m=(y2y1)/(x2x1) m=1/4 Then take any pt (2, 2) or (6, 3) (yy1)=m(xx1) Then substitute the values of m & x1&y1 x4y+6=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay have you covered the equation m = (y2  y1)/(x2  x1)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so 32=1 and 62=4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yup but its (3  2)/(6 2) so m becomes 1/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and now we have our slope and you can pick either of the two set of coordiantes, and reapply the formula we used in the previous question

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yup so in this case (2, 2) looks like the easier coordinate to use (because smaller numbers) so you can sub this and the slop of 1/4 into (y  y1) = m(x  x1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats not a choice though..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Thats because they don't have fractions in the answer, so we should rearrange our equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so to get rid of the fraction on the right hand side, we can multiply both sides of the equation by 4 for starters

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yup, and now we simplify further by resolving the 8 on the left hand side and 2 on the right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats not an answer either :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Thats because they have multiplied the left and right hand sides by 1, so try that and tell me what you get
