    I think it will b helpful if you consider h as f(x) that is H(-1)=4 means... when value of x is -1 ; y value (f(x)= is 4... and soon.. construct the the line equation using two point form.. then find value for h(0)

    We can find 2 points from h(-1)=4 and h(5)=1

    y+1=-1/2(x-4) is it y-y1=m(x-x1) ??? can you please check...

    your slope is correct...but the point you took is wrong

    is it...I have doubt.. y1 is 4 and x1 is-1... but in the abopve equation you took y1 as -1 and x1 as 4 amI right?
