write an equation in slope intercept form to represent the table of values.

x=2 3 5 6
y=-3 -4 -6 -7

please help me solve it, i find it complicating

  1. Use the slope formula Y2-Y1/X2-X1 to find the slope and then insert that for m in the slope intercept for y = mx+b then plug in one of the sets of values for y and x to find b.

    i can solve it for you if you want...

  2. please do, it would be very helpful

  3. (-4)-(-3)/(3)-(2)=-1

    y=-1x+b

    -3=-1(2)+b
    -3=-2+b
    -1=b

    y=-x-1
