Q:
# Point Slope & Two Points: Write a linear equation in slope intercept form with the given information.1. Slope = -6; passes through (-4, 1)2. Slope = 4/3; passes through (-5, -6)3. Passes through (-4, 11) and (2, 8) 4. Passes through (6, 3) and (14, -5)

Accepted Solution

A:

Question 1:

Sub the coordinates in for x and y

Y=-6x + b

1=-6(-4) +b

1= 24 +b

-23=b

Final answer: Y=-6x -23

Repeat for question 2

Question 3:

Slope = y2-y1/x2-x1

8-11/2- -4

-3/6= -0.5

Slope is -0.5

Sub x and y into equation

Y=-0.5x +b

11=-0.5(-4) +b

11=2+b

9=b

Y=-0.5x +9

Repeat for question 4

Sub the coordinates in for x and y

Y=-6x + b

1=-6(-4) +b

1= 24 +b

-23=b

Final answer: Y=-6x -23

Repeat for question 2

Question 3:

Slope = y2-y1/x2-x1

8-11/2- -4

-3/6= -0.5

Slope is -0.5

Sub x and y into equation

Y=-0.5x +b

11=-0.5(-4) +b

11=2+b

9=b

Y=-0.5x +9

Repeat for question 4
