For the first one, you are given two points....calculate the slope using this method:

https://web2.0calc.com/questions/what-is-the-slope-of-the-line-that-contains-the-points_1

For the second one, the mid point will be given by the averages of the x and y values

I'll do the 'x' one.....you do the 'y' one

(x_{1} + x_{2) }/ 2 = (1+5)/2 = 3 = x point of the midpoint.....now for the y:

?

Point 1 (-1, -2)

point 2 (2,3)

(y_{1}-y_{2) }/ ( x_{1}-x_{2)}

(-2-3) / (-1-2) = -5/-3 = 5/3
