A line has a slope m=1/3 and it passes through the point (3, 4). Find the equation for the line in slope-intercept 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:
    y-y1=m(x-x1)
    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)
