I have the answer, but I am stuck in the middle of the problem

Through (4,2) and (1,3)

m= 3 - 2 / 1 - 4 = - 1/3

y - 2 = (-1/3)x (x-4)

y - 2 = this is where I get stuck. I know the answer is y = (-1/3)x + 11/3

How about through (1/2, 5/3) and (3, 1/16)

(1/16) - (5/3) / (3) - (1/2)

I understand how to do them until they are fractions. I know the answer is y = (2/3)x-2 but don't know how to work it out. - September 8th 2008, 12:52 PMSimplicity
