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)

the formula says: for a line passing through the point (a,b) and having slope m, its equation is of the form yb=m(xa) here a=1 , b=4 & m=1/2 can you replace them ?

Well, 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)
