Chapter 3 - Section 3.5 - Equations of Lines - Exercise Set: 14



Work Step by Step

The given line has a slope of 4 and goes through the point (5,1). We can write this line in point-slope form $y-y_{1}=m(x-x_{1})$ with $m=4$ and $(x_{1},y_{1})=(5,1)$. $y-1=4(x-5)=4x-20$ Add 1 to both sides. $y=4x+21$ This line is now in the slope-intercept form of $y=mx+b$.
