Answer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Given 2 points example. Find the equation of the line thru the points (2,1) and (3,5) --------------------- This is a 2 step process. First find the slope of the line thru the points. slope, m = diffy/diffx m = (5-1)/(3-2) m = 4 --------- Now use y = mx + b with either point to find b, the y-intercept. y = mx + b 5 = 4*3 + b b = -7 ------- y = mx + b y = 4x - 7 is the answer. ------------------------ For further assistance, or to check your work, email me via the thank you note.
