Given any two points \[\large (x_1, y_1) \ and \ (x_2, y_2)\] The slope of the line through them is given by \[\huge \frac{y_2 - y_1}{x_2 - x_1}\]

However, in this case, you seem to end up with \[\frac{9-(-3)}{2-2}=\frac{12}{0}\] Which is undefined. By the way, if the slope of a line is undefined, it means the line is vertical. (if the slope is zero, the line is horizontal)

so i will choose D

i think its "D"

terenzreignz (terenzreignz):

You're right. Again, I hope you arrived at the answer the correct way... (although if you were pressed for time, trial and error may be quicker if you have choices)

-1/3x + y = –1 y = 4 + 1/3x A. infinitely many solutions B. no solution C. no solution D. infinitely many solutions

Which one do u think

Try to set up both equations so that y goes (alone) on one side, and everything else on the other.

terenzreignz (terenzreignz):

In the second equation, it's already done for you. Let's do the first... y = (1/3)x - 1 Am I right?

terenzreignz (terenzreignz):

Well, anyway, your lines are parallel, and they do not intersect anywhere, ergo, there are no solutions.

so wat would be the answer

terenzreignz (terenzreignz):

No solutions. It's in your choices.

Write a rule for the linear function in the graph. A. y = -4x + 13 B. y = -4x – 13 C. y = 4x – 13 D. y = 1/4x – 13

terenzreignz (terenzreignz):

You have two points marked on your graph. In each of these choices, substitute both points. There is only one equation here that would satisfy both points.

This isn't the proper way to solve this, but time's not on our side... I have to go for now. -- Terence out

what would be the equation if i give up cause i tried it couldnt solve it

Simple, try again... no giving up, lol.
