**intermediate algebra-check my answer**

You were given the points, (x1, y1) = (-8, -6) and (x2, y2) = (0, 0) y = 3/4 x + b Use one of the given points, for example, (-8, -6) Solve for b -6 = 3/4(-8) + b b = 0 Therefore, the equation is y = 3/4 x + 0 y = 3/4 x I guess I miss-understood you. I didn't realize that ...

**intermediate algebra-check my answer**

y = ax + b m = 3/4 y = 3/4 x + b You need to find b for this equation. Substitute one of the given points into your equation and solve for b. Then use that b value for your equation.
