Standard form is y=mx+b
m=slope and b= y-intercept
slope = m= 10-2 = 8/-15 = -8/15
-9-6
y=(-8/15)x+b
Use (6,2) to solve for b.
2=(-8/15)(6)+b
2=-48/15+b
78/15=b=26/5

Winter break is approaching and I have found that my students are eager to get away from school. I donâ€™t blame them. I would be lying if I said I hate winter break and rather be in school during this time. It is a time for the students to relax and not
worry about their classes. Everyone needs a break. Unfortunately, I am afraid that due to the apathy many students have formed with school,...

-42x+6y=72
The trick to finding the slope is to remember your general linear equation: y=mx+b
In this equation, m is the slope. So, for this problem you need to set everything equal to y.
Step 1: Add 42x to both sides of the equal sign. This causes 42x to...
