Find the equation....

Find the equation with the given properties. Express the equation in slope intercept form.
Containing points p=(-4,-2) and Q=(-2,1)
What is the equation of the line?
y=

asked by Lauren
  1. P(-4,-2), Q(-2,1).

    m = (1-(-2))/(-2-(-4)) = 3/2.

    Y = mx + b
    Y = (3/2)*(-4) + b = -2
    -6 + b = -2
    b = 4.

    Eq: Y = 3x/2 + 4
