Solutions

Chapter B, Problem 12E
To determine

To find: The equation of the line for the given conditions.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 12E

The equation of the line is y=72x312.

Explanation of Solution

Given:

The required line is passing through the point (3,5) and the slope of the line is 72.

Property used:

The equation of the line passes through the point (x1,y1) and having slope m is, yy1=m(xx1).

Calculation:

Consider the given point be (x1,y1)=(3,5) and the slope m = 72.

Substitute the values in the property mentioned above.

yy1=m(xx1)y(5)=(72)(x(3))y+5=72(x+3)2(y+5)=7(x+3)2y+10=7x212y=7x21102y=7x31y=72x312

Thus, the equation of the line is y=72x312.
