October 20, 2006 Name Show all your work on this paper. Solutions without correct supporting work will not be accepted. All answers
must be exact unless indicated otherwise in the problem. You must omit one problem by clearly writing “OMIT” by the problem number. If you do not omit a problem I
will omit the last one for you. You may work the problem you omit for up to 5 points extra credit if you wish. 1. a. Write the equation of the line that passes through the points (2,3) and (5,4). Write your answer in slope
