Find the slope intercept form of the line with the following properties.
Slope=4 containing the points (2,5)
I know that slope intercept form is y=mx+b so the m is the slope which is 4 but now I get confused since they give me x any y values (2,5). Is it just y which is 5? So would it be
y=4x5?

no....
you know it starts like this
y = 4x + b
isn't (2,5) on this line, so shouldn't it satisfy your equation ? Let's see ....
5 = 4(2) + b
13 = b
equation: y = 4x + 13
test it by subbing in the given point. Does it work?

I trust you know about y = mx + b Realize that when you are given the x or y intercepts, you are really just given two points, in your case the points (4,0) and (0,2) So it is easy to find the slope, (20)/(04) = 1/2 Take it from …
