What is an equation of the line having the given slope and containing the given point

M = -8,(4,6)

  • Math -

    Recall the point-slope form of an equation:
    y - y1 = m(x - x1)
    where
    m = slope
    (x1, y1) = point on the line
    Substituting,
    y - 6 = -8(x - 4)
    y - 6 = -8x + 32
    y = -8x + 38 (slope-intercept form), or
    8x + y = 38 (standard form), or
    8x + y - 38 = 0 (general form)

    Hope this helps~ :3
