How do you write the equation of a line in slope intercept, point slope and standard form given Point: (-5, 4) Slope: m = 2?
Slope intercept equation is
The point-slope is given as
The standard form of an equation is
Now, for slope intercept, substitute all the values you have been given and solve for
Then substitute only
Now for the point-slope (which is just another method of finding the equation of the slope), you find that there's
So, substitute the values of
As you can see, both methods give the same results by substitution.
For the standard form, you use the format of the equation of the point-slope but rearrange it so that the
This is almost in the format of
Which can also be solved by taking the results from one of the other equations and rearranged to follow the format of
Hope this helps.
