How do you write an equation in slope-intercept form of the line that passes through the given points (3,5) and (0,4)?
First, we must determine the slope of the equation. The slope can be found by using the formula:
Substituting the values from the points in the problem gives:
The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:
The y-intercept is one of the points given in the problem - (0, 4) or a y-intercept of
We can substitute the slope we calculated and the y-intercept into the formula giving:
