So this means that and . Also, is the second point . So this means that and . Start with the slope formula. Plug in , , , and Subtract from to get Subtract from to get Reduce So the slope of the line that goes through the points and is Now let's use the point slope formula: Start with the point slope formula Plug in , , and Rewrite as Rewrite as So the solution is -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you need more help, email me at jim_thompson5910@hotmail.com Also, please consider visiting my website: http://www.freewebs.com/jimthompson5910/home.html and making a donation.
