What is the slope-intercept form of the line passing through # (0, 6) # and # (3,0) #?
In the slope intercept form
m = the slope ( think mountain ski slope. )
b = the y intercept ( think beginning )
The slope can be found by
putting the values for the points into the equation gives
Putting this value for m the slope into an equation with one set of value for a point can be used to solve for b
First of all, You have to use the
The Point-Slope Form of a Linear Equation is:-
So, The Slope for the Required Line
Now, We can use the Slope - Intercept Form.
So, The Equation becomes,
We have been told that The Line has a Point
So, The Co-ordinates of that Point must satisfy the Equation.
So, The Final Equation is,
Hope this helps, and I really hope that my colour choice isn't too much bad.
