(4,-2) and (2,-8) lie on the line Ax-2By = 28. What is the value of A?


SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!
THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!


4,-2) and (2,-8) lie on the line Ax-2By = 28. What is the value of A?
Put the points in. First one.
A4-2B(-2)=28
4A+4B=28
A+B=7 call this equation 1)
second point:
A2-2B(-8)=28
2A+16B=28
A+8B=14 call this equation 2)

Now you have two equations...
A+B=7
A+8B=14
Now solve for A and B by any number of methods.

    Use the distance formula to determine whether the points lie on the same line. (0,4),(7,-6),(-5,11). I know the distance formula, but I don't see how that will help me find out if they lie on the same line.
