  1. Part 1. We don't draw graphs here. You have not provided any equations, anyway.

    Part 2. Both points have the same y value. You therefore have a horizontal line with equation y = 18.1

    The slope is zero and the y-intercept is 18.2.

  3. drwls gave you the equation above.

    "You therefore have a horizontal line with equation"
    y = 18.1

    points (-6.2,18.1) and (-3.4,18.1)
    As drwls said above,
    "The slope is zero and the y-intercept is 18.1."

    The slope intercept form of an equation is,
    y = mx + b
    m = 0
    y-intercept = 18.1
    y = 0x + 18.1
    y = 18.1 is the equation for the line.
