Thank you for any help! :)

I simplified it alot, most of it was pointless information anyways.

All you need to do is substitute these two values into the slope intercept form of a line:

since m=2 and b=-2, we see that $\displaystyle y=2x-2$ is the equation of our line.

Now try to find [any] possible solutions to $\displaystyle \frac{10}{x}=2x-2$ (this will give you the solutions). Then write the solutions of the ordered pair.

Here's the graph of those two functions over the interval $\displaystyle \left[-3,4\right]$:

Does this make sense?
