(4,3)(2,-5) equation:Answer by jim_thompson5910(29613)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! First let's find the slope of the line through the points and Note: is the first point . So this means that and . Also, is the second point . So this means that and . Start with the slope formula. Plug in , , , and Subtract from to get Subtract from to get Reduce So the slope of the line that goes through the points and is Now let's use the point slope formula: Start with the point slope formula Plug in , , and Distribute Multiply Add 3 to both sides. Combine like terms. So the equation that goes through the points and is Notice how the graph of goes through the points and . So this visually verifies our answer. Graph of through the points and
