 Question 66011This question is from textbook Beginning Algebra : Write the equation of the line with given slope and y-intercept. Then graph each line using the slope and y-intercept. I am not quite sure what they mean by write out the equation of the line. Slope: -2; y-intercept: (0, 4). I can do the graph but I do not quite understand what they mean by writing out the equation. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.This question is from textbook Beginning Algebra Answer by funmath(2925)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Write the equation of the line with given slope and y-intercept. Then graph each line using the slope and y-intercept. Slope: -2; y-intercept: (0, 4) The slope-intercept form of a line is: , where m=slope and (0,b)=y-intercpet, your slope, m=-2 and your y-intercept, (0,b)=(0,4): You said you know how to graph this, but just to be thorough: Plot (0,4) Form that point use your slope which is rise/run in this case -2/1 to plot another point. If you go down 2 and right 1 you should be plotting the point at (1,2) Connect the two points and you should have a linbe that looks like this: Happy Calculating!!!
