M= Y2-Y1/X2-X1 [FORMULAR] NAME THE NUMBER'S FOR CONVINIENCY. (2,5) and (8,1) X1 Y1 X2 Y2 M= Y2-Y1/X2-X1 OR M=Y1-Y/X1-X 1-5 / 8-2 = -4/6 M=-4/6 .....-2/3 FINAL FIND THE EQUATION OF THE LINE FORMULA M=Y1-Y/X1-X (2,5) X1 Y1 -2/3=5-Y/2-X CROSS MULTIPLY GIVES YOU 2[5-Y]=-3[2-X] 10-2Y=-6+3X -2Y=-6-10+3X -2Y=-16+3X DIVIDE BOTH SIDE BY -2 -2Y/-2=-16+3X/-2 Y=-16+3X/-2 FINAL ANSWER.
