 Question 455303: i need help writing an equation for this (2,3); x+4y=9Answer by oberobic(2304)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!I assume you mean you want to know if the line goes through (2,3)? . First, get the equation into slope-intercept form: y = mx + b x +4y = 9 Subtract x from both sides 4y = -x +9 Divide both sides by 4 y = -x/4 + 9/4 That's means the slope = -1/4. . When x=0, y=9/4, which is the y-intercept . When x = 2, y = ? y = -2/4 + 9/4 y = 7/4 . So the line does not go through (2,3). . Graphing the line may be helpful. . Done
