I created a line using the slope given and working backwards, using the points (10, 3). My answer was y=1/2x + 8 1/2 (using my graph paper). What did I do wrong?Found 2 solutions by Alan3354, ewatrrr:Answer by Alan3354(34677)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Find the equation of the line with m=1/2 and passing through (10,3). ------------- Use y = mx + b to find b 3 = (1/2)*10 + b b = -2 ----------- y = (1/2)x - 2 ------------------- Not sure what you did on the graph paper. Answer by ewatrrr(11176)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi Find the equation of the line with m=1/2 and passing through (10,3). Using the standard slope-intercept form for an equation of a line y = mx + b where m is the slope and b the y-intercept. y = (1/2)x + b | using Pt (10,3) to solve for b 3 = 5 + b -2 = b y = (1/2)x -2 ```
