point slope form looks like $y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$ so you can ignore the A and D now we need the slope

4. anonymous

$\frac{8+2}{-17-3}=\frac{10}{-20}=-\frac{1}{2}$ is your slope

5. anonymous

i think B

6. anonymous

so it is the one that looks like $y-8=-\frac{1}{2}(x+17)$

7. anonymous

right

8. anonymous

yes B will do it
