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)

well you are given two points so you can find your slope which is m= y2y1 / x2x1 so you get 28/ 3(17) = 1/2

First find slope by two points y2y1/x2x1.Then Use Point Slope Form yy1=m(xx1)

pointslope 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)

or if you use the point (17 , 8) you get y8 = 1/2 (x(17)) which is y8 = 1/2 (x+17)
