Question #15172

Write an equation of a line in slope intercept form with slope 2/3 going through the point (-3,1)

Expert's answer

General form of the equation in slope-intercept form:

y=mx+b

Here we have m=2/3, so

y=2/3x+b

Line is going through the point (-3,1) so

1=2/3*(-3)+b

1=-2+b

b=3

Therefore we obtain

y=2/3x+3

y=mx+b

Here we have m=2/3, so

y=2/3x+b

Line is going through the point (-3,1) so

1=2/3*(-3)+b

1=-2+b

b=3

Therefore we obtain

y=2/3x+3
