Write an equation in slope-intercept form of the line that passes through the given points.

1. (-3,4), (1,4)
2. (3, -2), (6,1)

  • Math -

    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
