Q:
# Moises is determining the solution to the system of equations that is show below. Equation representing line A: mc018-1.jpg Points on line B: (3, β12) and (9, β24) Step 1: Determine the slope for B: mc018-2.jpg Step 2: Determine the y-intercept for B: mc018-3.jpg Step 3: Write the equation in slope-intercept form: mc018-4.jpg

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:

equation of line is:

y = -2x - 6

Explanation:

The general form of the line is:

y = mx + c

where:

m is the slope of the line

c is the y-intercept

(a) getting the slope of the line:

slope of the line is calculated using the following rule:

slope of line (m) = (y2-y1) / (x2-x1) = (-24--12) / (9-3) = -2

The equation now becomes:

y = -2x + c

(b) getting the y-intercept:

The two given points belong to the line. Therefore, to get the y-intercept, we will use one of the points and substitute in the equation and solve for c.

I will use the point (3,-12)

y = mx + c

-12 = -2(3) + c

-12 = -6 + c

c = -12 + 6

c = -6

Based on the above, the equation of the line is:

y = -2x - 6

Hope this helps :)
