Please see the attached file for the complete solution.

1.) Find the distance between the points (4,-1) and (-5,3)

D = SQRT ((X2 - X1)2 + (Y2 - Y1)2)
= SQRT (81 + 16)
= SQRT (97)
= 17.5

2.) Find the midpoint of the line segment with endpoints (5,-2) and (-3,12)

MIDx = (X2 - X1)/2
= (-3 - 5)/2
= -4

MIDy = (Y2 - Y1)/2
= (12 + 2)/2
= 7

MID point is (-4, 7)

3.) Graph the equation

4.)

5.) Find the equation of the line with slope 0 and y-intercept (0,-2). Write your answer in the form y=mx+b

Slope 0 means m = 0 therefore
Y = b

y-intercept (0,-2) means b = -2, therefore:

y = -2

6.) Write the equation of the line passing through ...
