    oh wait. it DOES have answers. sorry. Here they are, but i have to show work: 1.) y=-5/2x-5 2.)y=2/5x+2 3.) y=5/2x-2 4.) y=-2/5x-2

    well what you do is y-y,=m(x-x,) so you would get y+2=2/5 (x+5) Then you would get y+2=2/5x+2 After that you would subtract 2 from both sides Your answers should be y=2/5x
