**Reiny**, Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 9:14pmthe slope-y intercept equation has the form

y = mx + b , where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept

so for the first 2 questions it is simply a matter of putting in the given values

for the next two , we are given the slope but not the intercept

so for 3. start with

y = -3x + b

but (4,9) lies on it , so

9 = -3(4) + b

21 = b

equation is y = -3x + 21

Do #4 the same way

For #5 , first find the slope , then proceed just like I did in #3
