Subtract the y values and x values, then divide the remaining y/x

So for A. (1,4) and (5,2) (24) and 5(1) so 2/4=....1/2 so the slope for the points (1,4) and (5,2) is 1/2

Now pick any of the points, either (1,4) or (5,2) and using the slope that you just found, write an equation for the line. You will use the point slope formula.

So I'll pick the point (1,4) and with the slope 1/2 write the following formula y4=(1/2)(x(1).....y=4=.5(x+1)....This will be the answer for A
