Solve the following system by first handling the equation of the two lines:

x=(0, 2) y=(-2, 1)

x=(0, -1) y=(-3, -2)

Equation 1: y= -x1

Equation 2: y=4x/3+2T

Is this the correct answer?

m= (y1-y2)/(x1-x2)

**drwls**, Friday, September 18, 2009 at 8:22pmThe slope of the first line is (using BobPursley's formula)

[1 -(-2)]/2 = 3/2

The y-intercept (where x=0) is -2.

Therefore the equation is y = 3x/2 - 2

Now you do the other line.
