a line has a slope of 5/7 and passes through the point (12,9) write its equation in slope intercept form


y = 5/7x -15/7

  • Identify the slope(m) and the point on the line (x1,y1). A: Slope(m) = 5/7, Point (x1,y1) = (12,9).
  • Use the point-slope formula y-y1 = m(x-x1) to find the equation in point-slope form. A: y-9 = 5/7(x-12)
  • Solve the equation for y to get the slope-intercept form. A: y = 5/7x -15/7
