write an equation in slope intercept form for the line that has a slope of 2/3 and y intercept of (0,-5)

asked by Anonymous
  1. you have a point and a slope. Recall that the line through (h,k) with slope m is

    y-k = m(x-h)

    so, plug in your numbers.

  2. equation=change in y/change in x=slope. so y--5/x-0=2/3. cross multiply so the equation will be 3y 15=2x 0
