Formulas for Lines

Lines that don't go straight up and down (i.e. those that have well-defined slopes) can be written as y=mx+b. This is called slope-intercept form because m is the slope of the line and b is the y value when the line crosses the y axis. Figure out the slope-intercept form for the problems from the previous posting.
