First find the slope using the 2 point can you do that?
yes
What did you get?

zero slope or unidentified slop
\[slope = \frac{ 4-(-4) }{ 1-(-1) }\]
that's all
Nope you then need to use this slope and one of the points to find the equation. plug in this formula y-y1=m(x-x1) (x1,y1) is taken from one of the points
ok then what
i dont get my head is about to explode they gave me this question out of no where
can u show me step by step
So what do you have so far? m (slope)=4, choose the point (1,4), x1=1, y1=4 you should have y-4=4(x-1)
can you please just put all the steps on one reply like: 1. 2. 3. 4.
Step 1: Find the slope(m) = (4-(-4))/(1-(-1)) = 8/2=4
ok step 2
Step 2: Use point slope form to get equation: y-y1=m(x-x1), m=4, point (1,4) where x1=1, y1=4 In the point-slope equation: y-1=4(x-4) Do u understand these step so far?
yes
Step 3: Slope-intercept form is y=mx+b So we have y-1=4(x-4) Solve for y (that is put y by itself on one side).
If you did that correctly you should get: y=4x-15
ohhh thanks man
ill give u a medal
Sure no problem.
