  1. Given: (2, -2), Y = -x-2. m = -1.
    Y = mx + b.
    -2 = (-1)*2 + b.
    b = 0.
    Eq: Y = -x.

  2. here are the answers :)) (pearson 6.6.5 practice)

    y=-x (D)
    y=3/2x+2(C)
    x=4 (D)
    y=-2x-1 (B)
    y=-1/2x+5/2 (D)
    Perp (B)
    Parallel (A)
    Neither (C)
    Sometimes (B)
    never (C)

    ^^ not honors btw!

  3. you got something against minus signs?
    the slope of y = -x-2 is -1
    So, the point-slope form of the line through (2,-2) with slope -1 is

    y+2 = -1(x-2)

    Now massage that into slope-intercept form
