Choose the point-slope 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)

use 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)

- anonymous

can you give me a little help

- Nnesha

sure.
in this order pair first number is x-coordinate and 2nd one is y
so |dw:1442234657789:dw|

x_1 = -3
y_1 = 2
now look at this order pair (2,1) what's x and what is y?

- anonymous

-3,1

- Nnesha

hmm x= what
y= ??
in the order pair ( 2,1) there isn't any -3

- Nnesha

like i said first number in the order pair represent x value

- Nnesha

so in this order pair (2,1) which one is x and which one is y?

- anonymous

i'm very confused

- Nnesha

okay what u didn't understand ? :=)

- anonymous

x_1 = -3
y_1 = 2
now look at this order pair (2,1) what's x and what is y?

- Nnesha

|dw:1442235080851:dw|
first number in the order pair represent x-coordinate
so in this order pair (-3,2)
x= -2
and y =2

- Nnesha

so in this order x-coordinate is what ?(2,1) what number is replaced with the x ?
x= ??
y= ??

- anonymous

wait nevermind I got the answer

- Nnesha

okay good what did you get ? and plz show ur work as well

- anonymous

The 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 = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)
....= (1-2)/(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

- Nnesha

nice copy paste.

what do you mean ` 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` ??
i mistyped something ?
