Okay: Write the equation of each line using the given informaton: (1/2,3),(1,11/2) The / sign is not used as a division sign in this problem. Those are fraction. Can you show me how in the world I can solve this? Answer by stanbon(57400)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Write the equation of each line using the given informaton: (1/2,3),(1,11/2) ------------------------ Form: y = mx + b You need to determine m and b. ------------------------------------- m = (11/2 - 3)/(1 - 1/2) = (5/2)/(1/2) = 5 ----------------------------- You now know m and you know y = 3 when x = 1/2; solve for b. 3 = 5(1/2) + b --- 3 = (5/2) + b b = 1/2 ---------------- Equation: y = 5x + (1/2) =============================== Cheers, Stan H.
