If you have more than one question, you need to make separate posts.
To find the equation of a line, you need to have the slope of the line and a point on the line.
The slope is found using the slope formula:
Now sub in the point and slope into the equation y=mx+b to get:
`-1=-1+b` move -1 to left side
This means the equation of the line is `y=-x` .
