# Find an expression for the function whose graph is the given curve.52. The line segment joining the points (‒5, 10) and (7, ‒10)

To determine

To find: An expression for the function whose graph is the line segment.

Explanation

Given:

The graph is the line segment joining the points (5,10) and (7,10) .

Formula used:

The slope (m) of a line segment joining the points (x1,y1)and(x2,y2) is,

m=y2y1x2x1 (1)

The equation of a line with slope (m) and a point (x1,y1) is,

yy1=m(xx1) (2)

Calculation:

Use formula (1) and obtain the slope of a line segment joining the points (5,10) and (7,10) .

Here, x1=5,y1=10,x2=7,y2=10
