W(1, 2.4) and S(5, 2.4)
m=2.4(5)
______
2.4(1)
for the answer I get 2.6
_____
3.4
is this right if not please show me where I got off track.

Both points S and W have the same Yvalue. The slope of the line between them is zero.
The formula for m in this case is
m = (2.42.4)/(5 (1)) = 0/6 = 0
The equation of the line is is y = 2.4
