a line passes through the point (10,-9) and has the slope of -2/3
Michigan Certified Math Teacher/tutor
You must be looking for the equation of the line with slope -2/3 passing through the point (10,-9).
You will need the point/slope form of the equation of a line. y-y1 = m(x-x1) note: (x1, y1) is given in the problem. Now, just plug in and solve for y.
y + 9 = -2/3(x - 10)
Solve for y
The problem is giving you a point (10,-9) and the slope, m = -2/3. You will need the point/slope form of the equation of a line, y-y1 = m(x-x1), where x1, y1, represent the point given. Plug in and solve for y.
y - (-9) = -2/3(x - 10)
