 Question 335466: how do i find the slope -intercept form of the equation of the line that passes through(5,-1)(-5,5)Answer by stanbon(57984)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!find the slope -intercept form of the equation of the line that passes through(5,-1)(-5,5) ---------------------- slope = (change in y)/(change in x) = (5--1)/(-5-5) = 6/-10 = -(3/5) ---------------------------------------- Equation Form: y = mx+b Solve for "b" 5 = (-3/5)(-5)+b 5 = 3+b b = 2 -------------------------- Equation: y = (-3/5)x+2 ================== Cheers, stan H.
