  1. P1(x1,y1)=(-2,4)
    P2(x2,y2)=(3, 7/2)

    line passing through P1 and P2:

    L : (y-y1)/(y2-y1) = (x-x1)/(x2-x1)

    Substitute and simplify.

    I;m not sure if i am doing this right...I keep getting a negative intersection point, which doesn't seem possible. Please help! a) find the equatoin of line 1 which passes through (1,3) and (9,7) I get y=3+1/2(x+1)or y=1/2x+2.5 b)
