# What is the slope intercept form of the line passing through (7,2)  with a slope of 3/2 ?

Jul 27, 2016

$y = \frac{3}{2} x - \frac{17}{2}$

#### Explanation:

Slope-intercept form is $y = m x + b$. Substitute the values for the variables and solve for b:

$2 = \frac{3}{2} \left(7\right) + b$
$2 = \frac{21}{2} + b$
$- \frac{17}{2} = b$

$y = \frac{3}{2} x - \frac{17}{2}$
