 Question 125505: Write an equation of the line through the given points. (1,5),(0,6) Any help with the given equation would Greatly appreciated.Answer by checkley71(8403)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!FIRST WE FIND THE SLOPE (Y2-Y1)/(X2-X1) (6-5)/(0-1)=1/-1=-1 IS THE SLOPE OF THIS LINE. NOW REPLACE X & Y IN THE LINE EQUATION BY ONE SET OF COORDINATES & SOLVE FOR THE Y INTERCEPT(b). 6=-1*0+b 6=b SO WE HAVE THE LINE EQUATION Y=-X+6 (graph 300x200 pixels, x from -6 to 6, y from -10 to 10, y = -x +6).
