    First write the equation of the line in point slope form and then rearrange it.

    Point slope form is: \[y-y _{1}=m(x-x _{1})\]

    \[y+3=\frac{1}{2}(x+2)\] \[y+3=\frac{1}{2}x +1\] \[\frac{1}{2}x-y=2\]

    Or sometimes they want it without fractions in which case it would be: \[x-2y=4\]

  15. roberman228

    so the answer is x-2y=4

    To which graph does the point (2, -3) belong? Choose one answer. a. y > -x - 2 b. y > -x - 1 c. y > -2x + 3 d. y > -3x + 5 here is another i need help with

    So this is just like the first one with slope = -4

    so it would look like y-(-2)=-4(x-3)
