Consider the line that passes through the points (0, 4) and (-1, 3). Below are two different equations. Identify the true statement concerning both equations. Equation #1 Equation #2 y - 4 = 1(x - 0) y - 3 = 1(x - 1) Only equation #1 represents the line that passes through the two given points. Only equation #2 represents the line that passes through the two given points. Both equation #1 and equation #2 represent the line that passes through the two given points. Neither equation #1 nor equation #2 represents the line that passes through the two given points.

    Could you rewrite the two equations more clearly seperated so I can see the end of the first and the beginning of the second?

    Okay so this question is solely involving substituting in your values of (x,y) and seeing if the equation is satisfied, if an equation satifies both values of (-1,3) and (0,4) then it is representing a line that passes through those points.

    Try substituting in your values into the #2 equation, I think you may have made some errors

    The answer is only #1 represents the line passing through both points
