 Question 23882: write an equation of an equation of the line that passes through the given point and has the given given slope. write the equation in solpe- intercept form. (3, -9), m=-5 (-5, -6), m= -3 (4,-2) m= 1/2 (1/3,-5),m=8Answer by elima(1433)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Anither way to solve these; (3,-9) m=-5 Put it in slope-intercept form; y=-5x-9 You can make a table of values for x and y; x | y ----- 0 | 1 | -1| Solve the equation for y pluging in the values you chose for x; when x=0; y=-5(0)-9 y=-9 when x=1; y=-5(1)-9 y=-14 when x=-1; y=-5(-1)-9 y=-4 x|y ---- 0|-9 1|-14 -1|-4 Now plot these poinnts on the graph and draw your line to connect those. I will work out the other problems, but then you need ti graph them. 2)(-5,-6) m=-3 y=-3x-6 when x=0 y=-3(0)-6 y=-6 when x=1 y=-3(1)-6 y=-3-6 y=-9 when x=-1 y=-3(-1)-6 y=-3 3)(4,-2) m=1/2 y=1/2x-2 when x=0; y=1/2(0)-2 y=-2 when x=2; y=1/2(2)-2 y=-1 when x=4; y=1/2(4)-2 y=4/2-2 y=2-2 y=0 4)(1/3,-5), m=8 y=8x-5 when x=0 y=8(0)-5 y=-5 when x=1 y=8(1)-5 y=8-5 y=3 when x=2; y=8(2)-5 y=16-5 y=11 =)
