Write the equation of the line passing through (3, 5)and (3,0).
(a)y= 6/5x  5/2
(b)y= 5/6x  5/2
(c)y= 5/6 x + 2/5
(d)y= 6/5x + 2/5
You have to get the slope of the line using equation y2y1/x2x1.
[0(5)]/[3(3)] = 5/6
Now that you have the slope, you have to solve for the yintercept. Use the x and y value from one of your coordinates to solve for b.
y = mx+b
0 = (5/6)(3) + b
0 = 5/2 + b
5/2 = b
So your equation is y=5/6x  5/2.
