 Question 484532: can u help me figure out this problem m:1/6 y-intercept:-4 write an equation in slope intercept formFound 2 solutions by stanbon, solver91311:Answer by stanbon(57377)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!can u help me figure out this problem m:1/6 ; y-intercept:-4 write an equation in slope intercept form ---- y = (1/6)x -4 ===================== Cheers, Stan H. Answer by solver91311(16897)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The -intercept is not a number. The -intercept is an ordered pair of the form . I'm reasonably certain that your problem meant to say that -4 is the -coordinate of the -intercept, the -intercept then being Be that as it may, the slope-intercept form of an equation of a line is: where is the slope and is the -coordinate of the -intercept. You are given both of these numbers, so just plug them in. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
