# What is the slope intercept form of the line with a slope of -3  that passes through  (6,0) ?

Feb 29, 2016

$3 x + y - 18 = 0$

#### Explanation:

Equation of line passing through a point $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right)$ and having a slope of $m$ in point-slope form is given by (y-y_1)=m)x-x_1)

Hence equation of line passing through $\left(6 , 0\right)$ and having slope $- 3$ will be

$\left(y - 0\right) = \left(- 3\right) \times \left(x - 6\right)$ or $y = - 3 x + 18$ or

$3 x + y - 18 = 0$
