Find the slope intercept form of the equation of a line with the given slope that passes through the given point. slope -1,through (-6,-3)
The first thing you need to do is remember what slope intercept form is.
You are given that the slope is -1. We can plug that into the equation giving us:
We are also given a point that our line goes through. (-6, -3). Now this is a x value and a y value. (x, Y).
We can use this point to help us find b.
Now we can solve for b.
Subtract six from both sides to get b by itself giving us:
Now we can plug our value of b into our equation:
This is your slope intercept form equation.
Hope this helps!
