find the standard form of the equation of the line that satisfies the given condition.

x-intercept: -4
y-intercept: 2

  • math -

    y=-4x+2

  • math -

    Jessica's answer is not correct.

    x intercept point = -4,0
    y intercept point = 0,2

    y = mx + b is the standard line equation
    where:
    m = the slope of the line
    b = the y intercept

    The problems gives the y intercept as 2.

    slope = (delta y)/(delta x)
    = (0 - 2)/(-4 - 0)
    = -2/(-4)
    =?
