 Question 56508This question is from textbook Beginning Algebra : Can someone help me on this problem? I need to write the equation of the line with given slope and y-intercept. Then I have to graph each line using the slope and y-intercept. Slope: 5; y-intercept: (0, -2) Thanks, SherThis question is from textbook Beginning Algebra Answer by funmath(2926)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! I need to write the equation of the line with given slope and y-intercept. Then I have to graph each line using the slope and y-intercept. Slope: 5; y-intercept: (0, -2) The slope-intercept form of a line is: , where m=slope, and (0,b)=y-intercept. Your slope is 5 and b is -2, substitute them where they belong in your formula: To graph this, plot (0,-2). From that point, use the slope to graph another point. The slope . Keep the sign with the rise and always run to the right to keep from getting confused. In this case, your slope is +, so go up 5 units and right 1 unit and plot your second point, at what should be (1,3). Connect your points and you should have a line that looks like: Happy Calculating, Sher!!!
