Expert Answer

Step 1

We need to graph the line that passes through the given point and has the given slope. For that reason first we will have to find the linear equation having the given slope and passing through the given points.

Note:

The equation of the line having slope ‘m’ and passing through the point (a, b) is given by y - b = m( x – a ).

Step 2

P( 5); slope -4 m 4 and (a, b) (, 5) (a) So, the equation of the line is y 5 -4(x1) (Using the above statement) y 4x9 And the graph becomes, 15 y-4x +9 (0.9) (2.25, 0) 10
