Suckaaaa

can anyone solve this math problem for me???? ?

"write the equation of a line in slope-intercept form that contains (3 over 4, 1 over 2) and has the same slope as the line described by y+3x=36" do this problem and also explain how you got the answer thank you

y + 3x = 36 Subtract 3x from both sides. y = 36 - 3x The number in front of the x is the slope: -3. You need to have a line that contains the point (x1,y1) = (3/4, 1/2). Set up the equation like this, in point-slope form: (m is the slope) y - y1 = m (x - x1) So (y - 1/2) = -3(x - 3/4) distribute the -3 to x and to -3/4: y - 1/2 = -3x + 9/4 add 1/2 to both sides y = -3x + 9/4 + 1/2 y = -3x + 9/4 + 2/4 answer: y = -3x + 11/4
