Determine the standard form of the equation of the line that passes through (-8, -6) and (-4, 9)
To begin this, let's find the slope of that line. The slope is: 15/4. Now, we need to find the y intercept. To do this, we substitute (0,y) for (-8, -6). Solve for the slope (and set it equal to 15/4), and we get 24. Therefore, the equation of the line is y=15/4x+24.
Here is the graph:
