Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:slope: -(9/8)y-intercept: 7equation: y = -(9/8)x + 7Step-by-step explanation:Solve for the slope. m (slope) = (yβ - yβ)/(xβ - xβ)Let: (xβ , yβ) = (8 , -2)(xβ , yβ) = (0 , 7)Plug in the corresponding numbers to the corresponding variables: m = (7 - (-2))/(0 - 8)m = (7 + 2)/(0 - 8)m = 9/-8Your slope is -(9/8)Solve for the y-intercept. Plug in your slope into the slope intercept form: y = mx + bLet: (x , y) = (0 , 7) & m = -(9/8)Plug in the corresponding numbers to the corresponding variables: 7 = -(9/8)(0) + bSimplify: 7 = (-9/8 * 0) + b7 = (0) + bb = 7Your y-intercept is 7. ~
