Question 123729: Please help me solve this problem:
Find an equation of the line containing the given point and having the given slope
(_3,0), m=-2 Found 2 solutions by sujanag, checkley71:Answer by sujanag(3) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! (x1, y1)= (-3,0)
Slope = m = -2
Slope = (x2 - x1)/ (y2 - y1)
Given Slope = -2
Then (x2 - x1)/ (y2 - y1)= -2
(x2 - (-3)) / (y2 - 0) = -2
x2 + 3 = -2 (y2 +0) ( By taking denominator to other side)
x2 + 3 = -2y2
By making into order, x+2y+3 = 0
