Answer: y= x +
Write your answers as integers or as reduced fractions in the form A/B.
Find the equation of the line with Slope = 11/8 passing through the point (24,35). Write your answer in the form y = m x + b.
Answer: y= x +
Write your answers as integers or as reduced fractions in the form A/B.
Use the point-slope formula: y - y_{1} = m(x - x_{1}), where m is the slope and x_{1} and y_{1} are the numbers from the point.
y - y_{1} = m(x - x_{1}) Point-slope formula
y - 35 = 11/8(x - 24) Substitution
y - 35 = (11/8)x - (11/8)*24 Distribute the 11/8
y - 35 = (11/8)x - 33 Simplify
y - 35 + 35 = (11/8)x - 33 + 35 Add 35 to each side
y = (11/8)x + 2 Simplify
