5.1) We need to find the slope. . Plug the y-coordinates and the x-coordinates into the formula.

That would be either

or . Hint: The answer is a negative integer.

5.2) Set up the equation, . Plug in the answer from 5.1 for . Then choose

5.3) Solve equation 5.2 for .

5.4) Set up the equation again. Plug in the answer from 5.1 for . Plug in the answer from 5.3 from 5.1 for . Leave the and alone!

Please follow the above steps and reply, showing your progress.
