    The points A and B have coordinates (3k-4, -2) and (1, k+1) respectively, Where k is a constant. Given that the gradient of AB is - 3/2:

    a. show that k=3


    b. find an equation of the line through A and B.


    c. Find an equation of the perpindicular bisector A and B, leaving your answer in the form ax + by + c = 0. Where a, b and c are integars.

    can someone pls help me....

    That's a nice question. Really makes you think.

    Try using the formula for gradient: y2-y1/x2-1 for part a

    part b will be self explanatory from part a

    c is basically finding the equation of the line that is perpendicular of the line in the question. try using m1m2 = -1 for that part

    i have tried to use the gradient formula for part a and idk what to do after (k+1)+2 / 1-(3k-4)= -3/2 i get that i can multiply both sides by 1-(3k-4) but even after that i'm so lost. can u guide me thought part a only and b and c are easy after that
