Vertices of the triangle are A(-1, 2), B(1,5) and C(3,4)
Equation of the line segemnt AB is
$ \large\frac{y-2}{5-2} = \large\frac{x+1}{1+1}$
$ \Rightarrow \large\frac{y-2}{3} = \large\frac{x+1}{2}$ i.e., $2(y-2)=3(x+1)$
$2y-4 = 3x+3$
$2y=3x+7$
$y=\large\frac{3x+7}{2}$
Equation of the line segment BC is
$ \large\frac{y-5}{4-5} = \large\frac{x-1}{3-1}$
$ \large\frac{y-5}{-1} = \large\frac{x-1}{2}$
$ y = 5 = \large\frac{-1}{2}$$ (x-1)$
$y = \large\frac{-x+11}{2}$
Equation of the line segment CA is
$ \large\frac{y-4}{2-4} = \large\frac{x-3}{-1-3}$
$ \Rightarrow \large\frac{y-4}{-2} = \large\frac{x-1}{-4} \Rightarrow y-4 = \large\frac{1}{2}$$ (x-3)$
$ y = \large\frac{x+5}{2}$
