If a line has a slope of -5/3 and passes through the point (3, -6) how can I find the coordinates of the y- intercept (by solving for b?) ?? Please show work.

Equation of line is (y+6)=-5/3(x-3)... View the full answer

point slope form is y- y1 = m(x-x1) here point (x1,y1) = ( 3,-6) and slope = -5/3 y -(-6) =(-5/3)(x-3) y+6 =... View the full answer

• Sorry - 6 = - 5 + b , so b = - 1
