For the first equation, use the point slope formula and plug in the given data

y+4=(1/3)(x6) >Now rearrange this if it is required. You can leave it like this since it is correct.

And for the second part, find the slope between the two points: (6,1) and (4,2).. And use one of the points to form the equation.

it has 2 b completely simplified and 4 the first 1 got y=1/3x6

It would have helped if you would spell out the words. And no, it is not y=1/3x6. Instead it is y=1/3x2

For the second part, can you find the slope between the two points?

The slope would be 1/2. Now pick either point and write the equation.

y2=1/2(x+4)> Now rearrange this and get y=1/2x+4

ok thanks :) do you understand this problem : Write the equation of the line with an undefined slope, passing through the point (2, 5).

I don't understand how u can write an undefined slope

zordoloom Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
undefined slope means the line is vertical. Therefore, the equation for the line would be y=2

wait, x=2.

so you don't do anything with the 5?

y=2 would be horizontal, so it would be x=2

5 is a point above the 2. Only the first variable matters, which is 2.
