Write the standard form of the equation of each line given the slipe and y-intercept.
1. Slope= -1/5, y-intercept=0

Write the slope intercept form of the equation of each line.
2. Y-3=-2(x+4)

Write the slope intercept form of the equation of the line thorough the given points.
3. Through: (1,-4) and (-5,-4)

    Wow, I must say, if you cannot do those questions, then you are certainly not ready for your math exam

    1. if the y-intercept is 0, doesn't that mean the line goes through the origin or (0,0) ????
    so in y = mx + b form ...
    y = (-1/5)x
    multiply by 5
    5y = -x
    standard form has both x and y terms on the left, constants on the right, so
    x + 5y = 0

    2. given:
    y - 3 = -2x - 8
    take the -3 to the other side ...
    y = -2x - 5

    3. slope = (-4 - (-4))/-5-1) = 0/-6 = 0
    so you have a horizontal line !
    look at the y values of your two points, both -4
    As a matter of fact, your equation would simply be
    y = -4
