have you tried point slope form y – y1 = m(x – x1)? So take (8-4) and sub it in with y1 and x1 This will be y-(-4)=m(x-8) Simplify it so it will turn out as y+4=m(x-8) -4 y=m(x-8) -4 y=mx-12 Good Luck!

Do u happen to know any thing about parallel and perpendicular? I just dont understand how to tell if it is! Like (-5x + 3y = 2) or (y = -2/3x - 25) figured it couldnt hurt to ask u!
