What is the point – slope form of an equation for the line that has the indicated slope and contains the given point? slope = 1.

Question

What is the point – slope form of an equation for the line that has the indicated slope and contains the given point?

slope = 1.3;(-6.1, 5.3)

A) y – 5.3 = 1.3 (x – 6.1)

B) y + 5.3 = 1.3 (x – 6.1)

C) y – 1.3 = 5.3 (x + 6.1)

D) y – 5.3 = 1.3 (x + 6.1)

    D

    The equation of a line in point- slope form is

    y – b = m(x – a )

    where m is the slope and (a, b) a point on the line

    here m = 1.3 and (a, b) = (- 6.1, 5.3), hence

    y – 5.3 = 1.3(x + 6.1) ← in point-slope form
