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

same thing okay i got y-4=5/6(x-8)

I got lagged out of the site sorry No it's still incorrect y-y1=m(x-x1) y1=? x1=?

x=8 y=-4
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
yes
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
replace x with 8 and y with -4
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
recall: a - b = a +(-b)
narissa
  • narissa
yes
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
to subtract b add the opposite of b
narissa

y+4=-5/6(x+8)

x= 8 and y = -4, right^
narissa
  • narissa
okay so y--4=m(x-8)
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
yup, what about y--4?
narissa
  • narissa
oops y-4
narissa
  • narissa
y-4=5/6(x-8)
skullpatrol

|dw:1450142944963:dw|
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
does that^ make sense?
narissa
  • narissa

oh a negative * a negative = a positive...okay im understanding a bit more
narissa
  • narissa
y+4=m(x-8)
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Correct, good job :-)
narissa
  • narissa
would 5/6 still be positive or would that change to a negative
narissa
  • narissa
i mean would it still be negative or will it change to positive
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
the sign of the slope does not change in the formula
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
$$\Huge y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$$
narissa
  • narissa
okay so my answer is y+4=-5/6(x-8)
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
yes
narissa
  • narissa
alright thanks so much :D
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Thanks for asking :D
