a) $y-5 = 2*(x+2)$ b) an infinite quantity of equations

Work Step by Step

a) $y-y_{1} = m*(x-x_{1})$ $y-5 = m*(x+2)$ $y-5 = 2*(x+2)$ b) $m$ can be any real number, so there could a large number of possible values for $m$. Thus, there are an infinite number of values (and an infinite number of equations).
