A line that passes through the point (–1, 3) has a slope of 2. Another point on the line is (0, 5).

The equation of this line is y = 2x + 5;

y - 3 = 2(x + 1);

y = 2x + 2 + 3;

y = 2x + 5;

when x = 0;

y = 2*0 + 5;

y = 5

The equation of this line is y = 2x + 5;

y - 3 = 2(x + 1);

y = 2x + 2 + 3;

y = 2x + 5;

when x = 0;

y = 2*0 + 5;

y = 5

A customer brings a lawn mower into your shop to be repaired. The mower contains a four-stroke, single-cylinder, 12 hp Kohler engine. The customer complains that the engine won't start and that the starter cord seems to be "stuck." He then explains that this problem occurred after running the mower in a field of very high grass. You immediately notice that the exterior of the mower is very dirty and covered with grass clippings. When you attempt to pull the starter cord, you find that it won't ...

The probable diagnosis is that the engine overheated due to clogged cooling fins, causing the piston and crankshaft to seize.

Solution:

y - y = m(x - x )

m = (y - y ) / (x - x )

= (5 - 2) / (0 - (-2))

= 3 / 2

y - 2 = (3/2)(x - (-2))

y - 2 = (3/2)(x + 2)

y - 2 = (3/2)x + 3

y = (3/2)x + 3 + 2

y = (3/2)x + 5

Comparing this equation with the given options, we can see that the correct answer is y = -3/2x + 5.

y - y = m(x - x )

m = (y - y ) / (x - x )

= (5 - 2) / (0 - (-2))

= 3 / 2

y - 2 = (3/2)(x - (-2))

y - 2 = (3/2)(x + 2)

y - 2 = (3/2)x + 3

y = (3/2)x + 3 + 2

y = (3/2)x + 5

Comparing this equation with the given options, we can see that the correct answer is y = -3/2x + 5.
