Given: m=4/5,(4,-9)
Via Slope-Intercept Form, y=mx+b
Finding y-intercept "b":
, y-Intercept (0,-61/5)
It follows --->
or
--->
, Standard Form (Answer)
To verify, we'll get the intercepts:
Let Fy=0 ---->
--->
, x-Intercept (61/4,0) or (15.25,0)
Let Fx=0 --->
--->
,y-Intercept (0,-61/5) or (0,-12.2)
As we see,
Thank you,
