What is the linear function if slope is -19/15 and y intercept is (0,-2)?

Dec 31, 2016

y = -19/15x - 2

Explanation:

To determine the linear function for this problem all we need to do is use the slope-intercept formula.

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

$y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and color(blue)(b is the y-intercept value.

Substituting the information given:

$y = \textcolor{red}{- \frac{19}{15}} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{- 2}$

$y = \textcolor{red}{- \frac{19}{15}} x - \textcolor{b l u e}{2}$
