  1. If you Plot (-2,5) and go down three units, and over 4 units you arrive at the new point...
    Or
    (-2, 5) the slope is rise/run that is -3 for the rise (y value) and 4 for the run value
    5 -3 is the y value
    While -2 + 4 is the x value
    but you have to do either one TWICE to get a point on the line : )
    Let me know your guess : )

  2. Is it B?

  3. I checked one of the 'similar questions', did the work, and I think it may be A or B.

  4. B is nowhere near your line : (
    BUT A is : )
