Enter the slope-intercept of the line that has the same slope as y-3=1/2(x+3) and contains the point (8,4). Complete the explanation of how you found the equation.

y=____; I used the general form of a line in slope-intercept form, or y-y1=m(x-x1), y=mx+b, ax+by=c (choose 1 of the 3). The slope, m, is____. Then I substituted _____ for x and _____ for y into the standard form and solved for b, which is _____.



(I need help as soon as possible pls fill the blanks)

Then I substituted _____ for x and _____ for y into the standard form and solved for b, which is _____. y= in the original formula, solve for y y-3=1/2(x+3) y-3 = 1/2 x + 1.5 +3 +3 y=1/2 x + 4.5 since this is in y=mx+b formula, m=1/2 the points on your new line are x=8 and y=4 so substitute 8 for x and 4 for y now you have 4=1/2(8) +b solve for b
