Find y so that C D - has slope m , where:a) C is 2 ,   - 3 , D is 4 ,   y , and m = 3 2 b) C is - 1 ,   - 4 , D is 3 ,   y , and m = - 2 3

To determine

(a)

To find:

The value of y so that line CD with vertices 2, -3 and 4, y has slope m=32.

Explanation

The slope of the line that contains the points x1,y1 and x2,y2 is given by

m=y2-y1x2-x1 for x2x1

The given points are 2, -3 and 4, y

To determine

(b)

To find:

The value of y so that line CD with vertices -1, -4 and 3, y has slope m=-23.
