    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)
    Graph:

    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

    The diverse functions of slopes are provided. The intercepts to graph the equations are determined. Step-by-step solutions are provided neatly for all the problems using graphs.
