Q:
# What is the equation in point slope form of a line that passes through the points (-8,2) and had a slope of 1/2

Accepted Solution

A:

First you have to plug in your information into the formula- y=mx+b

So we know the y is 2, the slope (m) is 1/2, the x is 2 and we don't know the b. Do plug it in the formula and solve... you should get 2=1/2(2)+b you will end up with 1=b and the final answer is y=1/2x+1
