    you know m = 3/4. Take the first coordinate pair (1,1). Set y=1 and x=1. Then: \[1=3/4 + c\] \[c=1/4\] You can check this value by using the other coordinate pair (5,4) \[4=15/4 + c\] \[c=(16-15)/4 = 1/4\] Therefore the equation of your line is \[y=\frac{3}{4}x + \frac{1}{4}\]

    go back to the general equation of a line: \[y=mx+b\] in this case, m=0 so it' just \[y=b\] This tells you that the line is a straight line forever, parallel to the x axis and intersecting the y axis at 6. Now look at your two pairs of coordinates. y is 6 in both (it better be)! So the equation of your line is......?

    yes \[y=6\] is the equation of your line, it's a very boring graph if you ask me

    remember x is a variable, and is allowed to take all values on the real line, but it obeys the law 0x=0

    y_2-y_1 = -299 - (-300) = -299 + 300 = 1 x_2 - x_1 = 101 - 100 = 1 so it is 1/1 = 1. Your way worked too which is a good thing!

    use y=x+b and one of your coordinate pairs to solve the equation for b. (Gradient is 1 not -1 by the way).
