When asked to write a pointslope equation for a line passing through the points (3, 5) and (2, 4), a student wrote y4=9/5(x2) . How can he fix this to write the correct equation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hello @autumnmarietyler1 Sorry for the late reply :/ Let us first see what slope the students was supposed to have slope = rise/run = (y2  y1)/(x2  x1) so the slope in this case would be 4  (5) 4 + 5 9  =  =  2  (3) 2 + 3 5 which is a positive slope does the student have a positive slope as well? I hope this helped! If you have anymore questions feel free to tag me :) @sleepyhead314
