this problem is in slope form so u would solve it by adding 3 to both sides (to isolate your "y" value. in this equation your slope would be 2 because slope formula is y= mx+b M is your slope

slope = m = (Y2-Y1)/(X2-X1) = (-4-8)/(8-8) Oh my, we have a problem, the slope is undefined because of zero denominator. The line with infinite slope goes straight up, constant x so the solution is x = 8

Math
point slope relies on the fact that the slope m of a line is constant. So, for any point (x,y) on the line through (h,k), the slope (y-k)/(h-k) = m slope-intercept just reflects the fact that if the slope is m, every time x changes by 1, y changes by m. so, y = mx That ...

Find the slope of any line perpendicular to the line through points (0,5) and (-3, -4). the slope i get is = 3 so the slope of any line perpendicular would be the reciprocal of 3 which is -3/1 is that the correct answer. or do i have to word it differenly like y = -3/1x + 5 if...

to graph the line, plot the point (-5,-2) Now, since the slope is 1/2, that means that y increase by 1 when x increases by 2. So, starting at (-5,-2), move right 2 and up 1 and plot that point : (-3,-1). Draw the line through those two points. the slope of 5x+5y=3 is -1 The ...

Remember that: "y = mx + b, and m is the slope, " For the first one: 1) y = x + 4 y = x - 3 "Two lines are parallel if they have the same slope " Knowing that "x" is a short form for "1x" where slope=m=1, can you deduce whether they have the same slope? You can take it from ...

Math
(2/3)y = (-1/5)x to get the slope, we first transform this equation into slope-intercept form, y = mx + b where m = slope and b = y-intercept. note that the numerical coefficient of y (number before the variable y) in slope-intercept form is 1, thus to change the given ...

Which of the following equations has a graph that is parallel to the graph of 4x-2y=7? Rearrange them in the format y = mx + b and see which one has the same value of m (the slope). y = (-7/5) x -1 has slope -7/5. Compare the slope of the other line. The slope of y = 5x + 2 is...

A line that is parallel to y = 2 has a slope of 0. A line perpendicular to y = 2 has a slope of infinity (or undefined). A line parallel to x = -4 has a slope of infinity (or undefined). A line perpendicular to x = -4 has a slope of 0. By slope intercept form I assume you mean...

1) and 2) are the same kind of problem, I will do the second one 3y/2 + 5/3 < (-7y+2)/4 multiply each term by 12 , the LCD 18y + 20 < -21y + 6 39y < -14 y < -14/39 3) slope AB = slope AP 4/-3 = (p-2)/3 times 3 -4 = p-2 etc

Part 2: The point pairs chosen is (5, 1) and (-3, 4). First of all, the slope must be found out. The formula for it is: slope = rise/run slope = (4 - 1)/(-3 -5) = 3/-8 = -3/8 Point slope form: y - 1 = -3 (x - 5)/8 Slope intercept form: y - 1 = -3x/8 + 15/8 y = -3x/8 + 23/8 ...

using the slope-intercept equation y = mx + b (where m is the slope and b is y-intercept) y = x +7 (where 1 is the slope and 7 is the y-intercept) Answer: slope is 1

algebra
the slope of the first is -2/5 and the slope of the second is 5/2 notice their product is -1, so they are perpendicular. (slopes are negative reciprocals of each other) (to get the slope in my head I used the rule: for Ax + By = C, slope = -A/B )

College math
Both of your equations are straight lines. So they have the same slope no matter where you are on the line 21. y = -4x + 5 compare with y = mx + b, where m is the slope slope = -4 let me know what you got for 22.

calculus
Just check the slope on each interval. increasing when slope > 0 constant when slope = 0 decreasing when slope < 0 Looks like it's constant at 2 for x in (-7,-1) After that, it's increasing with slope = 1/2

Math
The key to perpendicular lines is that the slopes will multiply together to get negative one. Since your original slope is 0.5, your new slope will be -2. Passing through your stated points, the point-slope equation of the line will be: y-(y1)=m(x-(x1)) plug in your slope & ...
