How do you write it in slope-intercept and general form?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

Since the question speaks of a line, we assume that this is a linear function that follow the generic equation

This system can be solved by two ways. I'm going show it using the *substitution method*, but the additive method works as well. Therefore, isolate either

Then substitute it in the other equation:

Since

Notice that the negative sign of
