Find the equation of the line through the points   and  
Express the answer in slope-intercept form if possible.

Find the equation of the line through    perpendicular to

Find the slope of the line      by solving for 
       this line has slope  
If 2 lines are perpendicular then their slopes are negative reciprocals.
Therefore, a line perpendicular to      has slope 1 and must be
     Using the point    we see that
               
Therefore the equation of the perpendicular line through    is
  

Do the points    , and      lie on the same line?
If these points lie on the same line, then the slopes of the lines
connecting these points must be equal.

Graph the equation      
To make this graph, get at least 2 points on the graph.
Just to make sure I don't make a mistake, I'll get 3 points.
We know the graph is a straight line.
If    then             lies on the line.
If    then             lies on the line.
