    Well, just be thankful that God gave you a good brain so that you can learn. Pity those unfortunate people who can't.

    What if in this case, you find x and its -3-7/4-x and the slope is -1?

    And slope is -1 which is -1 over 1 or 1 over -1

    When you cross multiply you get -4+x=-10

    Okay so the -1 has to multiplied like this?: -1(-4-x)
