find the value of a so that the points A(6, 2a) and B(a, -2) lie on a line having slope 7.

Aug 4, 2020

Well, think about it! A slope of seven means that the $$\frac{\text{change in y}}{\text{change in x}}=7$$. So, using our formula, we can make an equation from your points, giving$$\frac{2a-(-2)}{6-a}=\frac{2a+2}{6-a}=7$$. See if you can solve the equation for yourself now!
