1. Should this be Write an equation in point slope form...?

find the slope between A,B

Then, take the negative reciprocal of that slope, this will be she slope of the perpendicular.

Now, find the median point where the "bisector" intersects.

x= (-3+5)/2
y= (-3=6)/2

then, y= mx+b
you found m the slope of the perpendicular, and you know x,y, so find b.
