Write the equation of a line that passes through the point (-2, -3) and has a slope that is 0.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

What is m and what is x and y? y=mx+b Solve for b. Then to make your eqn of a line, jut put your m and b into y=mx+b.

*just

OpenStudy (anonymous):

x = -3?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

-3 = 0*-2 +b What is b?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

now plug in your m and b. y=0x -3

OpenStudy (anonymous):

a. y = -3 b. x = -3 c. y = -2 d. x = -2 Its only askng for one point

OpenStudy (anonymous):

It's just y=-3 because 0 slope means horizontal slope

OpenStudy (anonymous):

@Lib Libs try to use logic first :-)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

not just guess

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I didn't guess.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Undefined slope is vertical, 0 slope is horizontal so the equation is just x= or y = depending on which situation you're dealing with

OpenStudy (anonymous):

So whenever you try to find the eqn of a line, you need "m" and "b" You can find b if you have your point and a slope. You can find m if you have a point and a y-intercept (if a point is (0, something)), then it's both).
