4,-2) and (2,-8) lie on the line Ax-2By = 28. What is the value of A?
Put the points in. First one.
A4-2B(-2)=28
4A+4B=28
A+B=7 call this equation 1)
second point:
A2-2B(-8)=28
2A+16B=28
A+8B=14 call this equation 2)

Now you have two equations...
A+B=7
A+8B=14
Now solve for A and B by any number of methods.
