find the eqaution of the straight line with the gradient 0.5 and passing through the point (3, 4)

m = 0.5

x = -1

y = 10

The point you are given is "x = 3, y = 4". Where did "x = -1, y = 10" come from?

b)through (2,5) and (6,9)

my working out:

-1-9/0-2 = -10/-2 = -5

It looks as though you are using the points (0, -1) and (2, 9)...?

Instead, try plugging the given points, (2, 5) and (6, 9), into

**the slope formula**:

. . . . .
Simplify to get the value of the slope (or "gradient"). Then pick either one of the given points and plug it, along with the slope, into one of the formulas for

**a straight line**.

Simplify, and

**solve for "y="** to get the answer.
