 Question 589089: How do I graph the line and find the slope of (2,3) and (-6,-3)?Answer by lwsshak3(6494)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!How do I graph the line and find the slope of (2,3) and (-6,-3)? Standard form of equation for a straight line: y=mx+b, m=slope, b=y-intercept For given points: slope=∆y/∆x=(-3-3)/(-6-2)=-6/-8=3/4 equation: y=(3/4)x+b solving for b using coordinates of one of the given points (2,3) 3=(3/4)*2+b 3=3/2+b b=3/2 equation of line: y=3x/4+3/2 Graphing the line: Starting from the first point on the line at the y-intercept (3/2), move 3 units up and 4 units to the right (rise/run) to find the second point on the line.
