Slope = rise / run for the two points given

=(8-0)/(7-9) = -4

so the equation of the line looks like y = -4x + b to find 'b' sub in one of the given points

0 = -4(9) + b b = 36

y = -4x + 36 y intercept occurs when x = 0 y = 36 Y-intercept + slope = 36 -4 = 32

First, make

(7) the X1 and (8) the Y1

Then use the next point

(9) as the X2 value and the (0) the Y2

Then use the equation

M=Y2-Y1

-------------

X2-X1

Plug in The coordinate points and it should look like this

M= 0 - 8

-------------

9 - 7

Then solve and you get

M= 8

--------

2

If it can be simplified then simplify it.

Then you will get the value of M= 4.

Then you use the formula

Y=Mx+B

So you already know your slope, now you just have to solve for B.

So chose a point from your graph and plug-in.

For example the point (7,8)

8 is the Y-value

7 is the X-Value

Plug-in =

8= 4(7)+b

8= 28 +b

Minus 28 from 8

and you get

20= B

Your Final Answer is

Y=4X+20
