Solutions

Chapter 1.10, Problem 3E
To determine

To evaluate: The equation of line with given slope and passing through given point.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 3E

The equation of line with given slope and point is y2=3(x1)_ .

Explanation of Solution

Given:

Slope of line is 3 and line passing through a point is (1,2) .

Calculation:

Formula of point slope form of equation of line is, yy1=m(xx1)

In the above equation of line, m is slope of line and (x1,y1) is the value of given point.

Substitute 3 for m, 1 for x1 and 2 for y1 to get the equation of line,

y2=3(x1)

Thus, the equation of line with given slope and point is y2=3(x1)_ .
