1. y-5= 3(x-3)                                                    3. y-5= 1/2(x-5)

                                                                             y-5= 1/2x-2.5

2. y-4= 2(x-7)                                                       y= 1/2x+3.5


                                                                       4. y+2= 3(x-8)

                                                                          y+2= 3x-24
