Did I do this problem correctly?
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?

  • Math -

    No, neither is correct.

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

  • Math -

    The 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.
