Given the equation y − 3 = 1/5(x + 6) in point-slope form, how do you identify the equation of the same line in slope-intercept form?
Change the equation to the form of
We're changing the form of the equation from point-slope to slope-intercept. To do this, first solve for y:
Next we're going to change the format of the right side of the equation so that it has the form of
Since there is only the one x term,
And that's the answer in the format of
