What ordered pair is a solution to this equation?

𝑦 = −𝑥 + 10

A line passes through (1,6) and (4,4)

What is the slope of the line?

Point (2,10); Slope 4.  Write an equation for the line?

To find an ordered pair, pick any number you want, plug it into the equation for  x  or  y , and solve for the other variable. I pick  0  for  x.

y   =   -x + 10   =   -0 + 10   =   10

When  x = 0 ,  y = 10  . So an ordered pair is  (0, 10) .

----------

slope  =  $$\frac{\text{change in y}}{\text{change in x}}\,=\,\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\,=\,\frac{4-6}{4-1}\,=\,-\frac{2}{3}$$

----------

The point slope form of the line is:

y - 10  =  4(x - 2)      This equation is correct as it is, but do you need it in slope-intercept form?

Okay...   We need to get   y - 10  =  4(x - 2)   into the form: y  =  mx + b  .

y - 10  =  4(x - 2)          Add  10  to both sides of the equation.

y  =  4(x - 2) + 10         Distribute  4  to each term in parenthesees.

y  =  4x - 8  + 10          Combine the  -8  and  10  to get  2 .

y  =  4x + 2
