**math -ans check**

two points on the graph of a linear function are (-3,5) and (-1,4). Determine the equation of the function in slop-point form. ans: m=-1/2 I pick a point (-1,4) y-y1=m(x-x1) y-4=-1/2(x-(-1)) y-4=-1/2(x+1) Thank you ^^

**Hi**

make a table using points along the graphed linear function .Then, determine the correct function.
