A line has a slope m=1/3 and it passes through the point (3, 4). Find the equation for the line in slopeintercept form.
a.)y = 1/3x + 3
b.)y  4 = 1/3(x  3)
c.)y  3 = 1/3(x  4)

I figured out the answer by using the slope intercept formula:
yy1=m(xx1)
y  4 = 1/3(x  3) 
the slope intercept form has the appearance of
y = mx+b
so you will have to continue with your correct starting equation
y  4 = 1/3(x  3)
y  4 = (1/3)x  1
y = (1/3)x  1 + 4
y = (1/3)x + 3 , which is choice a) 
Thanks:)
