Yep, another math question!

The slope of a line passing through H ( -2, 5) is -3/4, which ordered pair represents a point on the line?
A: (6, -1)
B:(2, 8)
C: (-5, 1)
D:(1, 1)

No graph was with the question btw. I tried making a coordinate plane myself and making lines to see if any of these points were there. Haven't found any tbh. But I'm sure I'm doing it wrong. I think maybe A or B is right

  1. slope AH = (5+1)/(-2-6) = 6/-8 = -3/4 <----- winner
    slope BH = (5-8)/(-2-2) = -3/-4 = 3/4 <---- wrong sign

    another way, but longer way, is to find the equation of the line using the given data,
    then subbing in each of the points to see if it satisfies.
    You should try it just for fun.
