 Question 90055: you are given the following info about a line (0,-3) and (-3,-6).using this info solve for the slope (m) and the y-intercept(b) you are given one coordinate point (1,4) and the slope of 2/3 solve for the y-intercept thanks...this question is from a work sheetAnswer by checkley75(3666)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!points (0,-3) & (-3,-6) define a line as follows: the slope(m)=(-6+3)/(-5-0)=3/-5 or -3/5 now we substitute one set of points & the -3/5 slope value & solve for the y intercept(b) -3=-3/5*0+b -3=b this is the y intercept. thus the line formula is: y=-3x/5-3 (red line) -------------------------------------------------------- 4=(2/3)*1+b 4=2/3+b b=4-2/3 b=3 1/3 or 10/3. for the y intercept. y=2x/3+10/3 (green line) (graph 300x200 pixels, x from -6 to 5, y from -10 to 10, of TWO functions y = -3x/5 -3 and y = 2x/3 +10/3).
