Not always. For example, try to find the slope of the line that passes through the points (3, 4) and (2, 3).
yes because you will need the slope and y-intercept to find the equation of a line and the point through which the line passes is the y-intercept so it is yes!!!!!!! Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Slope, m, equals (y2-y1)/(x2-x1). Slope is (8-2)/(8-2) or 1.
It is a straight line with no slope with a 'y' intercept of 2
Slope, m, equals (y2-y1)/(x2-x1). Slope is (0-(-1))/(0-(-1)) or 1/1 or 1.
If you know that the line passes through the point (0,0) and has a slope of 0.6, then you can use the point-slope formula to find the equation of the line. y - y1 = m(x - x1) becomes y - 0 = 0.6(x - 0) becomes y = 0.6x
slope = change_in_y/change_in_x = (-1 - 2)/(8 - 5) = -3/3 = -1
If given simply the slope of a line and a point through which it passes, and then told to find the equation of the line, one of the easiest ways of doing so is to use the point-slope formula.
Points: (0, 0) and (10, 30) Slope: 3
The "point slope" formula would be used. This is Y-Y1=m(X-X1) where Y1 and X1 are points the line passes through. M is the slope, so to find the slope of a line perpendicular, take it's opposite reciprocal which would be -8x/9. So Y-(-8)=-8/9(X-18) distribute -8/9 into X-18 and add the 8 on the left side of the = to get the slope intercept form.
It's not possible because the given points would be a vertical line parallel to the y axis
Assume your points are (x1, y1) and (x2, y2). The slope of a line is its rise (the change in y-coordinates) over its run (the change in x-coordinates). So to find the slope of the line, you substitute the correct values into the formula (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1).
Find the slope of the line passing through (5, 5) and (-4, 5).
It is a straight line through the origin, with a positive slope.It is a straight line through the origin, with a positive slope.It is a straight line through the origin, with a positive slope.It is a straight line through the origin, with a positive slope.
Answer: When there is no slope stated in the function of x, when y=mx+b It simply means y=0x+b Since "b" is the y intercept, your line would be a horizontal line parallel to the X-axis passing through point (0,b) Answer: In other cases, you may need to calculate the slope first, from some other information provided. For example, if you are asked to find the equation that passes through two specified points, you can first find the slope between those two points. Then you can use this slope, and one of the points, with the slope-intercept form of the equation.
To find the slope of a line passing through a given pair of points is found by using the point slope formula. Y(2)-Y(1) over x(2) -x(1).
Slope is "Rise over Run"Run is in the X direction (10 in the question)Rise is in the Y direction (30 in the question)30 / 10 = 3Slope = 3
