If point A is (-8,3) and point B is (-6,1) and slope is -1 what would the x and y intercepts be?


What would the equation be in standard form?

  • MATH -

    y -y1 = m(x-x1)

    Use either point...

    y-3 = -1(x+8
    y-3= -1x -8
    y = -x -5

    Now, change to standard from
    to find the x- intercept.. let y =0 and solve for x.
    to find the y- intercept, let x = 0 and solve for y.
