There exists an equation to the line: y=-5/4x+7 that goes through the x-intercept of the line: -3x-17y=9. What is the equation in slope-intercept form?
Find the x intercept of the equation -3x-17y=9
To find x intercept let y equal 0 and solve for x.
Divide both sides by -3 to find x.
(-3,0) is the x intercept.
Given the first equation of a line, find its slope.
Now, use point slope form to write the equation for the line with slope of -5/4, passing through (-3,0)---->(x1,y1).
y-0 = -5/4(x-(-3))
