Question

1. Write the equation of a line in slope-intercept form that has a slope of -1/4 and passes through the point (8, -1).

2. Write the equation of a line in point-slope form that has a slope of -1 and passes through the point (-2, 5).

These are my last 2 questions thank you everyone for all the help!!

see explanation

Step-by-step explanation:

1

The equation of a line in slope- intercept form is

y = mx + c ( m is the slope and c the y- intercept )

here m = – , hence

y = – x + c ← is the partial equation

To find c substitute (8, – 1) into the partial equation

– 1 = – 2 + c ⇒ c = – 1 + 2 = 1

y = – x + 1 ← in slope- intercept form

2

The equation of a line in point- slope form is

y – b = m(x – a)

where m is the slope and (a, b) a point on the line

here m = – 1 and (a, b) = (- 2, 5), hence

y – 5 = – (x – (- 2)), that is

y – 5 = – (x + 2)
