  1. What is your question on this assignment?

    I would use point slope, but it could be any of the forms.

  2. (-1,4) (-5,2)

    Slope: m = y2 - y1/x2 - x1

    2 - 4 / -5 - (-1) = -2/-4

    m = 1/2

    Equation: y - y1 = m(x - x1)

    y - 4 = 1/2(x - (-1))

    y - 4 = 1/2(x + 1)

    y - 4 + 4 = 1/2x + 1/2 + 4

    y = 1/2x + 9/2
