Find the slope, if it exists, of the line containing the pair of points (-2, -10) and (-13, -12)
The slope m = ? Simplify your answer type an integer or a fraction, type N if the slope is undefined.

Slope = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1) = (-12 + 10)/(-13 + 2) = -2/-11 = 2/11

Use the intercepts to graph the equation x - 5 = y
________________________________________________________________________

y = x - 5
When y = 0, x = 5  The x-intercept is (5, 0)
When x = 0, y = -5  The y-intercept is (0, -5)

Find an equation of the line having the given slope and containing the given point
m = 6, (9,2) The equation of the line is y = ? Simplify your answer, use integers or fractions for any numbers in the expression.
_______________________________________________________________________

The line is y - y1 = m(x - x1)
 y - 2 = 6(x - 9)  y = 6x - 52

Find an equation of the line containing the given pair of points (-5,-7) and ...

Solution Summary
