Given that a linear equation has a slope of –3 and a y-intercept of 1, determine the point-slope form of the line.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Standard point slope form of a line is -

y = mx + c

where -

m is the slope, and c is the y intercept

Given in the question -

m = -3 and c = 1

therefore, required point slope form is -

y = -3x + 1

That is not one of the answers to choose from

Can you tell me the options?

Yes, y-1=-3x, y+1=-3x, y-3=1x, y+3=-1x

Alright,

Equation I provided earlier is ..... y = -3x + 1

rearrange above equation and take '1' on left hand side, you will get -

y-1 = -3x

so the answer is first option.
