# What is the equation of a line that passes through points (0, 4) and (-4,-8)?β

Accepted Solution

A:

[tex]\text{Hey there!}[/tex][tex]\text{The slope formula is:}\dfrac{\bf{y_2\ - y_1}}{\bf{x_2\ - x_1}}[/tex][tex]\bf{y_2 = -8}[/tex][tex]\bf{y_1=4}[/tex][tex]\bf{x_2=-4}[/tex][tex]\bf{x_1=0}[/tex][tex]\text{Your equation should look like this:}\dfrac{-8 \ - 4}{-4 \ - 0}[/tex][tex]\text{Solve the numerator first (the top) then the denominator (the bottom) }[/tex][tex]\text{-8 - 4 = -12}[/tex][tex]\dfrac{-12}{-4 - 0}[/tex][tex]-4 - 0=-4[/tex][tex]\dfrac{-12}{-4} =\ ?[/tex][tex]\dfrac{-12\div-4}{-4\div-4}=\dfrac{3\div1}{1\div1}=3[/tex][tex]\boxed{\boxed{\bf{Answer: 3}}}\checkmark[/tex][tex]\text{Good luck on your assignment and enjoy your day!}[/tex]~[tex]\frak{LoveYourselfFirst:)}[/tex]
