K just a few questions that I can't figure out:

1) write and equation of a line whose x-intercept is the negative of the y-intercept.

2)For the points D(2,3), E(6,-1) and F(2,-1), determine the equation of a line through F and a)parallel to DE b)perpendicular to DE

3)An Equation of the line is y=mx-2. Find the value of 'm' if the line passes through a)(-3,1) b) (5,-2) ('m-'=slope)

4)Two perpendicular lines intersect on the x-axis. An equation of one line is y=(-3x-6) Find and equation for the other line.

Please help me out with these :(

hi mate http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif well i might be wrong since i dont know the english maths terms that well, but ill try to help You out:

1) this ones easy (if i got the question right):

f(x)=-x (or y=-x)

3) y=mx-2

a)1=-3m-2

3m=-3 |: 3

m=-1

b)-2=5m-2

5m=0 :|5

m=0

id help You with the others, but i dont know some of the terms http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
