    you seem to be on the right track, all its asking you i to right down the coordinates of the locations down.

    I guess im just not sure if the points i chose would work for the lines and everything

    well instead of going up by one, you might want to try going up by twos it might be easier to do.

    oh, would that make it easier to put it into a formula?

    You have not completed the key which is needed to identify the location of your parking spaces and the restaurants etc.

    Okay, so do I pick a random point that is in one of those areas?

    Sorry, idk. I mean, I don't even know what this positive/negative slope thing is :/ sorry

    It appears that you want to put something at (4,8) in that mall, how about a sun-glasses kiosk, you can use each parking space that will take care of 7 locations you need a minimum of 10 (so says the problem)

    Okay. Right, I was trying to do as many buildings as I could. I will put points in the parking spaces and update the picture.

    you will need to locate the coordinates to accomodate the written requirements in step 2. You will have to arrange 3 locations which will form a triangle, also you will need 4 locations to form your quadrilateral ( I would keep it simple and form a square) This is quite a project and will take some tine. You may want to reduce the number of parking spaces locations and place other locations which can accomodate the requirements of step 2. Note you may use more than 10 (a minimum of 10 is stated) But I would hesitate to use more than 10 because it is more work. Just make thos 10 locations satisfy what is required in step 2.

    Okay, so since I have a point in the mall and another point (parking space (2,5) then should I make a parking space above the mall to be the top point of the triangle?

    This is the beauty of this problem, you are in charge of the drawing and you could put any thing you need in order to comply, a "reserved parking" space, or a "stop sign" or a "storm drain" etc Just identify it in you key and dot the location coordinates.

    I would put the requirements where I could see them all at the same time, I can only view them one at a time on my computer.. I have to go now. good luck, keep it simple and keep motivated.

    Oh! okay so really I just need to make a triangle and then just add little details to make sure I have at least 10 points?

    You need to locate those 10 points so that: 1. when two of these points are connected they create a line with a positive slope (slant up and right) 2. two of the points can be connected forming a line with a negative slope. 3 Find two sets of coordinates (note this is four points - two per line) creating a pair of lines (they can be parallel or intersect) You state what they are (parallel or non-parallel) and prove with the slope formula. You then create a third line that is parallel and includes the point (1,-3) 4. Use two more sets and create two more lines either perpendicular or non perpendicular indicate the slope using slope formula, then draw a line that is perpendicular to one of your lines and includes point (-2,7) 5. Find three points that form a triangle (can be same points that may have been used previously or new points. Determine length of sides and slope and classify triangle as right, equilateral or isoceles or other. 5. Find four points that when connected from a quadrilateral. Find length of each side and slope. From this data classify your quadrilateral as a square, rectangle, parallelogram or rohombus, if it is something else provide explanation. There is a lot of work for this problem. Select and position your locations/list wisely so that you can use their coordinates. However you might be able to use coordinartes not listed as long as you identify and list their (x,y) values. Check with your instructor about that. I did not see where it was prohibited.
