A line has a slope m=1/3 and it passes through the point (3, 4). Find the equation for the line in slope-intercept form.

a.)y = 1/3x + 3

b.)y - 4 = 1/3(x - 3)

c.)y - 3 = 1/3(x - 4)

I figured out the answer by using the slope intercept formula:

y-y1=m(x-x1)

y - 4 = 1/3(x - 3)

the slope intercept form has the appearance of

y = mx+b

so you will have to continue with your correct starting equation

y - 4 = 1/3(x - 3)

y - 4 = (1/3)x - 1

y = (1/3)x - 1 + 4

y = (1/3)x + 3 , which is choice a)
