Choose the equation below that represents the line passing through the point (1, –4) with a slope of 1/2
y – 4 = 1/2 (x – 1)
y + 4 = 2(x – 1)
y + 4 = 1/2 (x – 1)
y – 4 = 2(x + 1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, you use the formula y2y1=M(x2x1). You've got the points (1, 4), which we'll consider (x1, Y1), and a slope of 1/2, which is M. You simply plug them into the previous formula: y(4)=1/2(x1)
