Find The Equation

Before leaving, I stop into the bathroom to splash some cold water in my face. I take a deep, shuddering breath and work the water into my skin. The callouses on my fingers grind against my weekend beard. I look up and see a single little vein creeping across my left eye. I really am tired.

I grab my jacket and work my way through the apartment building’s hallway. The walls are painted maroon and are lined with knockoff Velazquesz paintings. I count four paintings on my left and three on my right.

3 × 4=12

Find the equation of the line.

M=12, Y int.= 3/4

The equation of the line is Y=12x-3/4

My throat runs dry as I catch the elevator before the hall starts coming alive.
