 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=-2Found 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 Answer by checkley71(8403)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Y=mX+b 0=-2*-3+b 0=6+b b=-6 ANSWER FOR THE Y INTERCEPT.
