 Question 89012: write he equation of the line with slope -1/2 and y-intercept (0,3). Then graph the line.Answer by jim_thompson5910(28598)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! If you want to find the equation of line with a given a slope of which goes through the point (,), you can simply use the point-slope formula to find the equation: ---Point-Slope Formula--- where m is the slope, and (,) is the given point So lets use the Point-Slope Formula to find the equation of the line Plug in , , and (these values are given) Distribute Multiply the negatives Multiply and to get Add to both sides Combine like terms ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Answer: So the equation of the line with a slope of which goes through the point (,) is: which is now in form where the slope is and the y-intercept is Notice if we graph the equation and plot the point (,), we get (note: if you need help with graphing, check out this solver) Graph of through the point (,) and we can see that the point lies on the line. Since we know the equation has a slope of and goes through the point (,), this verifies our answer.
