Question

# Write an equation of the line with the slope -1 and y-intercept 10.Application

Hint:

### 1. Equation of a line in slope intercept form-

y = mx + b

2. Y-intercept is that point on a line where the line intersects with the y-axis i.e. the point at which x-coordinate is 0.

## The correct answer is: ∴ y = -x + 10 is the equation of the given line.

### Step-by-step solution:-

As per given information-

The given line has a slope of -1 and value of y-intercept 10.

∴ m = -1 & b = 10

Using Slope intercept form of a line, we can find the equation of the given line as-

y = mx + b

∴ y = -1 × x + 10

∴ y = -x + 10
