Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by Ty on Wednesday, May 14, 2008 at 3:34pm.

I can't get this slope stuff. I'm trying to find the equation for a line. It has a slope of 1/2 and passes through (8,3). Using the equation y=mx+b, I know that it should be y=1/2x+b so y=1/2(8)+b. Now, I don't know what to do. Is the 3 in the b or y spot? It says y=____ I'm so confused...thanks for help.
