Find the slope intercept form of the line with the following properties.
Slope=4 containing the points (-2,-5)
I know that slope intercept form is y=mx+b so the m is the slope which is 4 but now I get confused since they give me x any y values (-2,-5). Is it just y which is -5? So would it be
you know it starts like this
y = 4x + b
isn't (-2,5) on this line, so shouldn't it satisfy your equation ? Let's see ....
5 = 4(-2) + b
13 = b
equation: y = 4x + 13
test it by subbing in the given point. Does it work?
