What is the equation in point−slope form of the line passing through (−2, −5) and (2, 3)?
(y + 2) = −2(x + 5)
(y − 2) = 2(x − 3)
(y − 3) = 2(x − 2)
(y + 3) = −2(x + 2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For rise over run I got 4/2 and for point slope I got y5=4/2(x+2) Is this right at all?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im gonna guess that its D because its the only one with x+2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14/2 would be run/rise though :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Than 2/4 ;D So than it would be y5=2/4(x+2)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeap, just bear in mind that \(\bf \cfrac{\cancel{2}}{\cancel{4}}\iff \cfrac{1}{2}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok.. then you're correct, is 4/2 which is 2 of course :) now for the point to use could be either \(x_1,y_1\ or\ x_2,y_2\) so \(\bf \begin{array}{lllll} &x_1&y_1&x_2&y_2\\ % (a,b) &({\color{red}{ 2}}\quad ,&{\color{blue}{ 5}})\quad % (c,d) &({\color{red}{ 2}}\quad ,&{\color{blue}{ 3}}) \end{array} \\\quad \\ % slope = m slope = {\color{green}{ m}}= \cfrac{rise}{run} \implies \cfrac{{\color{blue}{ y_2}}{\color{blue}{ y_1}}}{{\color{red}{ x_2}}{\color{red}{ x_1}}}\implies \cfrac{\cancel{8}}{\cancel{4}}\implies 2 \\ \quad \\ % pointslope intercept y{\color{blue}{ 3}}={\color{green}{ 2}}(x{\color{red}{ 2}})\qquad \textit{plug in the values }\\ \qquad \uparrow\\ \textit{pointslope form}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn't it be positive 2 as the rise/run because the negatives both cancel?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ohh yea... darn.. yes it's 3(5) = +8 and 2(2) = +4 yeap \(\bf \begin{array}{lllll} &x_1&y_1&x_2&y_2\\ % (a,b) &({\color{red}{ 2}}\quad ,&{\color{blue}{ 5}})\quad % (c,d) &({\color{red}{ 2}}\quad ,&{\color{blue}{ 3}}) \end{array} \\\quad \\ % slope = m slope = {\color{green}{ m}}= \cfrac{rise}{run} \implies \cfrac{{\color{blue}{ y_2}}{\color{blue}{ y_1}}}{{\color{red}{ x_2}}{\color{red}{ x_1}}}\implies \cfrac{\cancel{8}}{\cancel{4}}\implies 2 \\ \quad \\ % pointslope intercept y{\color{blue}{ 3}}={\color{green}{ 2}}(x{\color{red}{ 2}})\qquad \textit{plug in the values }\\ \qquad \uparrow\\ \textit{pointslope form}\)
