Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use the point slope formula do you know what it is and how to use it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is the formula to find the slope of a line. Once you have the slope and a point you can use the point slope formula to find the rest of the equation. Those answers are all in point slope form. Give me a moment to work it out and ill get back too you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you use the point slope m=yy coordinate/xx coordinate then you get 1/2=y(4)/x1... Multiply both sides by (x1) and you get 1/2(x1)=y+4 or c make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0m stands in for the slope try to write it out and replace my / with fraction bars and it should be a little easier to understand

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, you have correctly narrowed it down to a or c. They gave you a point \(\sf (1,4)\), and that is in the form of \(\sf (x_1,y_1)\) So, plug in the values into: \(\sf yy_1=m(xx_1)\) where m is the slope
