a. y - 4 = one half(x - 1)
b. y + 4 = 2(x - 1)
c. y + 4 = one half(x - 1)
d. y - 4 = 2(x + 1)

a or c rigjt?

Use the point slope formula do you know what it is and how to use it?

y1-y2/x1-x2

- anonymous

That 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

- anonymous

If you use the point slope m=y-y coordinate/x-x coordinate then you get 1/2=y-(-4)/x-1... Multiply both sides by (x-1) and you get 1/2(x-1)=y+4 or c make sense?

- anonymous

not really

- anonymous

confused lol

- anonymous

m 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

- AbdullahM

yes, 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:
\(\sf y-y_1=m(x-x_1)\)
where m is the slope

- anonymous

showing me up lol with all your fancy techniques

- anonymous

so y+4= 1/2(x - 1)

- AbdullahM

correct

- AbdullahM

This is not fancy, this is the easy way @3714

- anonymous

thanks again abdullah

- AbdullahM

np :)

- anonymous

lol I tired

- AbdullahM

but your way would lead to the correct answer too, so no worries xD
