What is the slope-intercept form of the line passing through # (-6, 8)# and #(-3, 5) #?
Alright, so this is a two-part question. First we need to find the slope, then we need to find the y-intercept. Finally we plug all this into the slope intercept equation
The slope is commonly referred to as
Alright, now lets find the y-intercept by using that slope. If we plug that slope into the base formula we get
Now is if plug out
Even though we're done, lets check it by putting in the other point.
Hope this helps!
