Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Start by finding the slope between the two points: (2, 3) and (6, 8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Once you have the slope between the two points, use of the points and the point slope formula to create the proper equatioo.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Subbtract the yvalues and then subtract the x values. Then divide the resultant y values over the x values.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(2, 3) and (6, 8), the y values are 8 and 3. the x values are 6 and 2. So 83=5 and 62=4. Now divide 5/4... This is your slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the slope is 5/4 or do i divide that first then i will have the slope?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now use the formula yy1=m(xx1). Replace m with the slope that you just found. and x1,y1 with one of teh coordinate points that were give.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yy1=m(xx1). So replace m with 5/4.. This will look like yy1=5/4(xx1). Now say you chose to use the point (2, 3). This will look like y3=5/4(x2) If you were to use the point (6, 8), you will get something like y8=5/4(x6) both y8=5/4(x6) and y3=5/4(x2) are the same answers. It just will take some math to work them around to notice that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But look what choices you have in the multiple choice. The only one that matches that is B: y3=5/4(x2)
