## a line passes through the points (0,3) and (2,-9). what is the equation of this line in alope-intercept form

Using the point-slope formula, \( m = \frac{y_2 – y_1}{x_2 – x_1} \)

(0,3) and (2,-9)

\( m = \frac{3 – (-9)}{0 – 2} \)

\( m = \frac{12}{- 2} = -6 \)

y = -6x + b |using ordered pair Pt(0,3) to solve for b

3 = b

y = -6x + 3
