Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. We have two points so we can find the slope=(y2y1)/(x2x1)=(42)/(2(5))=6/3=2. We pick either point and use point slope form. Picking A: y2=2*(x+5) y=2x8 2. This is a rectangle so side AB and BC are perpendicular. That means their slopes are the negative reciprocal of each other. so the slope of line BC is 1/2=1/2. We know point B so we use point slope form again. y+4=1/2*(x+2) y=(1/2)x3
