Which point, A(3,7) or B(9, 22), is closer to the point C(8,14)? 2. Find the equation of the line thru the point C(8,14) that is parallel to the line through points A(3,7) and B(9, 22). 3. Find the equation of the line thru (7,10) and perpendicular to 7 x + 4 y = 21 4. Find the equation of the line that crosses the x-axis at 7 and the y-axis at- 8 WIR Math 166-copyright Joe Kahlig, 05B Page 2 5. Find the value(s) of a so that the line thru the points B(a, 1) and C(2, 5) is perpen- dicular to the line thru the points D(1, 2) and E(4, a+2)....
