point-slope form: \[y-y _{1}=m(x-x _{1})\]

Are those the letters we need to solve?

Oh then I'm not sure what would x sub 1 and y sub 1 equal to

Then what would we substitute in for the x and y values in the equation?

I thought you said we substitute those numbers in for x sub 1 and y sub 1

Yes!

y - (y sub one) = m(x - *x sub one*) Look at the PSF equation again.

Ok so I'm substituting the coordinates and this is what I understand:\[2-(2)=m(4-4)\]

Is that right?

No you only do it for y1 and x1, you don't substitute it in for ALL the variables.

What does it tell you that the slope(m) is?

It's 0.

So how do I solve for both x and y?

Exactly so what would our equation look like now?

It would look like y - 2 = 0(x - 4)

Right?

@Teddyiswatshecallsme r u there?

Yes I am! Sorry.

What is that again?

So how would you use that when applying to the formula?

Oh like that! Sorry! It's harder to understand some of the terms.

Yeah its a bit confusing sometimes so it because y - 2 = x - 4

Wouldn't the 4 become a 0 when you are distributing?

Now we need to do some order of operations to get that -2 over to the right side of the equation.

Still 4 dollars. But I thought anything multiplied with 0 will become 0.

Aren't you multiplying in this case?

Hmmm. Hold on. I need to do a bit of research. cx

Alright

Do you have multiple choice options?

I believe you are correct. So that would end up being, y - 2 = x So what do you need to do next?

No I don't unfortunately. :/

Put the -2 on the other side of the equal sign

So the answer would be y = x + 2.

Yes!

You are correct!

Thanks for your help!

You're welcome! :D
