any quick ways of remembering how to do it?

Another method to try is

**point-slope form**.**y-y**

_{1}= m (x - x_{1)}**(x**

_{1}, y_{1) is your point and m is your slope. }

So input the information you are given into the formula above.

**y-(2)= 4(x-(-1))**

Then you simplify.

**y-2= 4(x+1)**

**y-2 = 4x+4**

And then you solve for

**y**. (In other words, put the equation into**slope-intercept form**,**y=mx+b.**Your slope is**m**and your intercept is**b**)**y = 4x + 6**

From this we can see that our slope is

**4**, and our y-intercept is**(0,6).****CHECKING:**

Remember to always check your answer:

To check we take our final answer:

**y = 4x + 6**

and input our original point,

**(-1, 2)****2 = 4(-1) + 6**

**2 = (-4) + 6**

**2 = 2**

**So our answer checks!**
