What is the slope-intercept form of the line passing through # (-2, -1)# and # (0, -6) #?
See the entire solution process below:
The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:
First determine the slope of the line. The slope can be found by using the formula:
Substituting the values from the points in the problem gives:
Substituting the slope we calculated and the y-intercept gives:
