Write an equation in slope-intercept form of the line that passes through the given point and is parallel to the graph of the given equation.

the ordered pair (2, negative 2) ;y equals negative x minus 2.
A. y equals negative 2 x.
B. y equals 2 x.
C. y equals one-half x.
D. y equals negative x.

I belive it is A, can someone help me please!

  1. you got something against minus signs?
    the slope of y = -x-2 is -1
    So, the point-slope form of the line through (2,-2) with slope -1 is

    y+2 = -1(x-2)

    Now massage that into slope-intercept form

  2. Given: (2, -2), Y = -x-2. m = -1.
    Y = mx + b.
    -2 = (-1)*2 + b.
    b = 0.
    Eq: Y = -x.
