Choose the pointslope form of the equation below that represents the line that passes through the points (−3, 2) and (2, 1).
y + 3 = −5(x − 2)
y − 2 = −5(x + 3)
y + 3 = −one fifth(x − 2)
y − 2 = −one fifth(x + 3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1use the same formula to find slope \[\huge\rm \frac{ y_2 y_1 }{ x_2 x_1 }\] formula to find slope now plug x's and y's into the formula (x_1 , y_1 )(x_2 ,y_2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The equation is of the form y  y1 = m(x  x1) (x1, y1) is either of the given points; "m" is the slope. Find the slope. m = (y2y1)/(x2x1) ....= (12)/(2+3) = 1/5 However, this slope is not in any of the options, and I checked my work, so either you mistyped something, maybe one of the points, or the people making the book made a mistake. Plug in either point for y1 and x1 in the equation. Apparently they used (3, 2). y  2 = (1/5)(x  (3)) y  2 = (1/5)(x + 3) so the last one is the answer
