Question

The point-slope form of the equation of a line that passes through points (8, 4) and (0, 2) is y – 4 = 1/4(x – 8). What

iS the slope-intercept form of the equation for this line?

O y = 1/4x- 12

O y= 1/4x-4

O y= 1/4x+2

O y= 1/4x+6

Answer:3rd option

Step-by-step explanation: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

Given

y – 4 = (x – 8)

with m = and (a, b) = (8, 4 )

The equation of a line in slope- intercept form is

y = mx + c ( m is the slope and c the y- intercept ) , then

y = x + c ← is the partial equation

To find c substitute (8, 4) into the partial equation

4 = 2 + c ⇒ c = 4 – 2 = 2

y = x + 2 ← equation in slope- intercept form
