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.
