1)

Formula for slope:

y=mx+b

-4=(-3/4)(8)+b substitution

-4=-6+b

4+6=b additive inverse

2=b

Now we can substitute b into our equation.

So, y=(-3/4)x+2 will be our answer!

3) Again! :D

y=mx+b

-4=(-6)(1)+b substitution

-4=-6+b

4+6=b additive inverse

2=b

Now we can substitute b into our equation.

So, y=-6x+2 will be our answer!
