What is an equation of the line having the given slope and containing the given point
M = 8,(4,6)

Recall the pointslope 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 (slopeintercept form), or
8x + y = 38 (standard form), or
8x + y  38 = 0 (general form)
Hope this helps~ :3
