# What is the slope-intercept form of the line passing through # (0, 6) # and # (3,0) #?

##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

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

This gives

so

#### Explanation:

First of all, You have to use the **Linear Equations** to get the Slope of the line.

The **Point-Slope Form of a Linear Equation** is:-

Where

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,

So, The Final Equation is,
