    Once you have the slope, identify a point on the graph and use this formula y-y_1=m(x-x_1)

    You have miscalculated.

    \displaystyle\ x^{-\frac{1}{2}}=\frac{1}{1.5}\Rightarrow\frac{1}{x^{\  frac{1}{2}}}=\frac{1}{\sqrt{x}}=\frac{1}{1.5}

    \displaystyle\sqrt{x}=1.5\Rightarrow\ x=1.5^2

    Now X = 2.25

    when I try found (y) I don't get the answer I don't now why >>

    y = (2.25) - 3 (2.25)^1/2
    =-1.125 this answer not as on my book

    Also what is the range of values of curve's slop ?
    (-in,1] is this correct ?

    plese help me

    check again,

    y= 2.25-3\sqrt{2.25} = -2.25

    y= 2.25-3\sqrt{2.25}

    y= 2.25-3\times 1.5

    y= 2.25-4.5

    y= -2.25

    What do you mean "when I do here"? Are you saying you get something other than 2.25 for y? If so you are doing the arithmetic wrong!
