5y=3x+11

Step-by-step explanation: (3, 4), (-2, 1)

(x1, y1), (x2, y2)

SUBSTITUTE

(y-4) = 1-4/-2-3(x-3)

(y-4) = -3/-5(x-3)

(y-4) = 3/5(x-3)

(y-4) =3/5x - 9/5

y = 3/5x - 9/5 + 4

y = 3/5x + 11/5

(y = 3/5x + 11/5) 5

5y=3x+11

EQUATIONS OF LINEAR FUNCTION The slope of a line is a number that measures its "steepness", usually denoted by the letter m. It is the change in y for a unit change in x along the line. Read the details about slope in

Writing the equations of lines, however, requires the use of other forms depending on the given properties of the function:

1. THE SLOPE- INTERCEPT FORM- the linear function has been defined in terms of the equation f(x) = mx +b. this form is called the slope intercept form.

2. THE POINT- SLOPE FORM-  IF the graph of linear function y has a slope m and passes through the point ( x₁, y₁ , then its equation is y - y1 = m (x - x1).

3. THE TWO –POINT FORM – if the graph of the linear function y passes through the point ( x₁, y₁) and (x₂, y₂), its equation according to the point – slope form is   y - y₁ = m (x - x₁). But by its definition m = (y₂-y₁ )/(x₂-x₁) . By substitution y - y₁ = (y₂-y₁ )/(x₂-x₁) (x - x₁).

Given: Find the equation of the line of the form y = mx + b that passes through the following pairs of points. 10. (- 5/2 , 3/2) and (1/2, -1/4)

STEPS:   Substitute the values to the TWO- POINT FORM, then transform the resulting equation in the required form: SimplifySOLUTION:

X₁ = -5/2, x₂ = 1/2

Y₁ = 3/2, y₂ = -1/4

y - y₁ = (y₂-y₁ )/(x₂-x₁) (x - x₁)

y- 3/2= ((-1/4-3/2)/(-1/2- -5/2) )( x - - 5/2)

y - 3/2 = ((-7/4/ 2))( x+5/2)

y -3/2  = -7/2(x +5/2)

y -3/2  = -7/2x   - 35/4

y= -7/2x – 35/ 4 + 3/2

y= -7/2 x – 29/ 4

the equation is  y= -7/2 x – 29/ 4

Given: Find the equation of the line of the form y = mx + b that passes through the following pairs of points. 9. (-15/2 , 1/3) and (- 1/2, 1/3)

STEPS:

Substitute the values to the TWO- POINT FORM, then transform the resulting equation in the required form: Simplify

SOLUTION:

X₁ = -15/2, x₂ = -1/2,

Y₁ = 1/3, y₂=1/3

y - y₁  = ((y₂-y₁)/(x₂-x₁)) (x - x₁)

y- 1/3 = (1/3-1/3)/(-1/2-( -15/2)) ( x - (- 15/2))

y - 1/3 = ((0/ 7))( x+15/2)

y -1/3  = 0 (x +15/2)

y -1/3  = 0  + 0

y=  1/3

the equation is y=  1/3
