 Question 464368: Write the slope-intercept equation for the line that passes through (-5, 10) and (-4, 3). Please show all of your work. Answer by stanbon(57361)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Write the slope-intercept equation for the line that passes through (-5, 10) and (-4, 3). ---- Form: y = mx + b solve for "m" and "b": m = (10-3)/(-5--4) = 7/-1 = -7 ---- Substitute for y,x,m and solve for "b": 3 = -7*-4+b 3 = 28+b b = -25 ----- Equation: y = -7x-25 =============== Cheers, Stan H. ===============
