write an equation in slope intercept form to represent the table of values.

x=2 3 5 6
y=-3 -4 -6 -7

1. Emileee

Use the slope formula Y2-Y1/X2-X1 to find the slope and then insert that for m in the slope intercept for y = mx+b then plug in one of the sets of values for y and x to find b.

i can solve it for you if you want...

(-4)-(-3)/(3)-(2)=-1

y=-1x+b

-3=-1(2)+b
-3=-2+b
-1=b

y=-x-1

is that good?
