Write an equation of the line, in pointslope form, that passes through the two given points.
points: (–17, 8), (3, —2)
(y + 8) = –2(x –17)
(y – 8) = 1/2(x + 17)
(y – 8) = –2(x +17)
(y + 8) = 1/2(x – 17)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well you are given two points so you can find your slope which is m= y2y1 / x2x1 so you get 28/ 3(17) = 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First find slope by two points y2y1/x2x1.Then Use Point Slope Form yy1=m(xx1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0pointslope form is yy1=m(xx1) so you can use one point any of your choice . im going to use the point (3,2), and you get y(2) = 1/2 (x3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or if you use the point (17 , 8) you get y8 = 1/2 (x(17)) which is y8 = 1/2 (x+17)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The coordinates of point one are x1,y1 and that of point 2 are x2,y2.So according to formula u use coordinates of first point.Ans Is C then.
