Find the equation of the line
With a slope of (-1/3) that goes through the point (2, -4)
With a slope of 3 that goes through the point (-5, -1)
I'll do the second one for you.
Basically, I'm just substituting in the formula y=mx=b.
I hope I explained this well enough for you. I'm also in eighth grade and I was confused about this a few weeks ago.
