``slope 3, passes through (0, -6)`` Write an equation in slope-intercept form for the line that satisfies each set of conditions.
We can do this in one shot by using the point slope form instead, y-y1=m (x-x1) and simply solve for y.
The slope, m, is 3
The (x1,y1) is (0,-6)
Given slope m= 3
and the line passes through the point (x,y)= (0, -6)
the slope-intercept form of a line is
from the above we know m = 3, so the line equation is
we need to find the value of b , as the line passes through the point
(x,y)= (0, -6 ) , then on substituting we get
=> b = -6
so the equation of the line is
y = 3x - 6
