How do you write an equation of a line with (4,0) and slope 1/3?
There are several ways to write an equation of the line with (4,0) and slope
- Use Point-Slope form
- Use Slope-Intercept form
First, Point-Slope form :
Simplify if you wish:
Or, Slope-Intercept form : y = mx + b, where m is your slope, and b is the y-intercept (not given).
Then, use your ordered pair to substitute in for x and y, and solve for b:
