distance is sqr 165

Which is what the teacher got but as for the slope

I got he got sonething else

I got -5 for a slope

he got y=-5/4x + 17/4

and I have no idea how he got that

I just did the formula y2-y1/x2-x1

equation of a line

also I don't really know how to don't know how he did this

Y=2/5x +b

-4=2/5 (1) + b

ans. -22/5=b

I have no idea how he got the final ans.

Can u please explain it as easy as possible

Thanks
