# what is the equation of the line that passes through {negative 4, negative 1}and {0,7}?

A.Y=2X PLUS 9

B. Y=X/2 PLUS 7

C. 2X PLUS 7

D. Y= NEGATIVE 2X PLUS 7

Here's a way to approach your problem.

'm' represents slope.

'b' the y-intercept.

m = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)

m = [7 - (- 1)]/[0 - (-4)]

m = 8/4 = 2

Now you can find 'b' using the first ordered pair (-4, -1).

[y - (-1)]/[x - (-4)] = 2

(y + 1)/(x + 4) = 2

y + 1 = 2(x + 4)

Can you take it from here to finish?

I hope this will help.
