    Ok I don't understand that? Sorry could you explain it because I thought your x variable stays the same so why would it equal -2?

    x variables don't change in a vertical line-- only the yvalues change. since you are told that the point (-9,-2) is on the line, the x coord will always be -9 on that line . so x=-9
