what is the equation of a line of the x int is -10 and slope is -1/2
do you know the general equation of a straight line?
do you recognise this equation: \(y=mx+c\)
it represents an equation of a straight line which has a 'slope' of 'm' and a 'y-intercept' of 'c'. Have you seen this type of equation before?
I am trying to judge how you have been taught about straight lines so that I can help in the most appropriate manner. Have you been given any hints on how you should solve this?
