 Question 91843: Determine the slope of the line containing the points (6,-2) and (-1,5). Determine an equation for a line with slope 1/2 and y-intercept at (0, -3).Answer by stanbon(57361)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Determine the slope of the line containing the points (6,-2) and (-1,5). slope = [5--2]/[-1-6] = 7/-7 = -1 ------------------------------ Determine an equation for a line with slope 1/2 and y-intercept at (0, -3). Form of the line is y=mx+b You are told m=1/2 and y=-3 when x=0 -3=(1/2)0+b b=-3 EQUATION: y=(1/2)x-3 ================ Cheers, Stan H.
