Talking Help Solved!!

Well in order to find the relation you have to find the slope for each ordered pairs.
(-3,7) (-1,3) (3,-5) (4,-7)
NOTE THIS IS ONLY IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO FIND THE SLOPE
So you first take the first ordered pairs (3,-5) and (4,-7).
Then you set them up like this:
-7- -5 = -2
____ ___

3 - 4 = 1
Then afterwards you would divide the denominator by the numerator to get your slope and that should be -2.

Now you should know that the slope rules (Y2 - Y1)
(X2 - X1)
Thats how you get your slope. you do that for the other two ordered pairs and you should also get -2.

So since you got -2 for both of you slopes then you found the relation.
