Q:
# Write the slope-intercept form of the equation of the line through the given points.through : (2, 5) and (4, -1)β

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:y= -3x + 11Step-by-step explanation:Slope formula: y^2- y^1 divide by x^2- x^1 y^2 is -1y^1 is 5x^2 is 4x^1 is 2-1 - 5 = -64 - 2 = 2-6/2 = - 3Y-intercept: Using the slope and either of the two points, replace the y, m, and x in y= mx+b.Using (2, 5)5= -3(2) + b5= -6 + b Add 6 to both sides in order to eliminate -6.-6 + 6 = 05 + 6 = 1111 = bCombine your slope-intercept formula:y= 3x + 11
