I wanted to see if I was solving this problem correctly. A line passes through the point (-3,-8)and has a slope of -2.Write an equation for this line.

y=mx+b
m=-2
y=-2x+b
-8=-2(-3)+b

  • Math - ,

    so far so good. Now just solve for b and plug that into your formula.

    Then check that (-3,-8) satisfies the equation.
