Q:
# Choose the equation below that represents the line passing through the point (−5, 1) with a slope of three halves . (1 point) ANSWERS----y − 5 = three halves(x + 1) y + 1 = three halves(x − 5) y + 5 = three halves(x − 1) y − 1 = three halves(x + 5) 202 . (03.06 MC) Choose the equation below that represents the line passing through the point (2, −4) with a slope of one half . (1 point) ANSWERS--y = one halfx + 5 y = one halfx − 3 y = one halfx − 5 y = one halfx + 3

Accepted Solution

A:

problem 1:
We are given the points (-5, 1) and slope m = 3/2
We use the equation:
y – y1 = m (x – x1)
y – 1 = (3/2) (x + 5)
answer: y − 1 = three halves(x + 5)
problem 2:
We are given the points (2, -4) and slope m = 1/2
We use the equation:
y – y1 = m (x – x1)
y + 4 = (1/2) (x - 2)
y + 4 = ½ x – 1
y = ½ x – 5
answer: y = one halfx − 5
