Write an equation in slopeintercept form of the line that passes through the given points.
1. (3,4), (1,4)
2. (3, 2), (6,1)

2. (3,2), (6,1)
The equation of the straight line passing through the points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2),
y  y1 = (y2  y1)/(x2  x1)* (x x1)
y  2 = (1  2)/(6  2)* (x  3)
y + 2 = 3/8 (x  3)
y = mx + b
y + 2 = 3/8 (x  3)
solve for y
8y + 16 = 3(x 3)
8y + 16 = 3x  9
y = 3/8x  25/8
check my math
you try number 1
