 Question 40237: Write an equation in slope intercept form satifying the given conditions: passes through (-4,7) and (2,4)Answer by fractalier(2101)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Find the slope m first, then put it and one of the points into point-slope form and solve for y...here goes... m = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1) m = (4 - 7) / (2 - (-4)) m = -3/6 m = -1/2 Now y - y1 = m(x - x1) y - 4 = (-1/2)(x - 2) y - 4 = (-1/2)x + 1 y = (-1/2)x + 5
