  1. 1. you are given the slope and the y-intercept.
    You are asked to write the equation in slope intercept form
    You know that form is y = mx + b
    so just replace m and b

    2. first find the slope:
    slope = (6-4)/(4-6) = 2/-2 = -1
    so you must have:
    y = -x + b
    sub in the point (4,6) , or (6,4) if you feel like it
    with (4,6)
    6 = -(4) + b
    b = 10
    your equation is y = -x + 10

    3. All vertical lines have equation x = ???
    look at your given point, the x value is 1/4

    so your equation is y = 1/4
