Write the equation for each linear relationship in point slope form to slope is -8 the point (3,12) lies on the line

Answers

Step-by-step explanation:

As

The graph of the function passes through the point (2,1), and y increases by 4 when x increases by 1.

so

x             y

2             1

3             5

4             9

5             13

6             17

and so on

From the table:

\mathrm{Slope\:between\:two\:points}:\quad \mathrm{Slope}=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}

\left(x_1,\:y_1\right)=\left(2,\:1\right),\:\left(x_2,\:y_2\right)=\left(3,\:5\right)

m=\frac{5-1}{3-2}

m=4

As the slope-intercept form of the line is

y=mx+b

putting m=4 and any point, let say (2, 1) to find y-intercept 'b'.

1=\left(4\right)2+b

8+b=1

8+b-8=1-8

b=-7

So putting b=-7 and m=4  in the slope-intercept form of the line

y=\left(4\right)x+\left(-7\right)

y=4x-7

Therefore, the equation for the linear function will be:

y=4x-7
